Thank you all for joining!

Info – Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour

Meeting point:
We will meet at 10:30 sharp at the front gate of the conference venue

Tour details:

The mine tour itself will last 2.5 – 3h.

Our meeting point is the front gate of the conference venue at 10:30. We will be traveling to the mine by private bus. Once we arrive, we will split in groups of 40 people. The first group is scheduled to enter the mine at exactly 11:45. The second group will follow 10 minutes after the first. Count on being back no sooner than 16:00, and hopefully no later than 16:30.

The air in the mine is characterized by exceptional bacteriological purity and a high concentration of sodium chloride, magnesium and calcium ions. That is why the mine also serves as a treatment center. Enjoy every minute in there!

Weather: The temperature in the mine is stable and ranges between 14-16 Celsius degrees. We recommend therefore to bring warm clothes.

Things to bring: Lunch and water! Bring your own lunch as it is not included, and the only Cafeteria available will the underground Cafeteria at the end of the tour (14:15-14:45). We also suggest to wear comfortable shoes, as the tour requires doing some stairs.

Payment: The total price is 25 Euro. You are requested to pay directly during the registration to the pre-meeting activity. Payment are performed online through PayPal (account: McSwiggen Biotech Consulting). Please, specify “Junior Scientists Pre-meeting activity” when performing the payment.
