    I did the salt mine in Krakow and thought it was kind of tacky -- a lot of figures carved out of salt, and not a lot of explanation etc. of how salt is mined. But I have heard other people say that they liked it. If you are at all claustrophobic or scared of the dark, then definitely don't do the one in Krakow -- they put you in an open air elevator that plunges 1000 ft into the ground in total blackness.
