Visit Wieliczka Salt Mine
Wieliczka Salt Mine is a world-class, Unesco-listed underground landmark. Each year more than 1 million tourists visit the mine – not without any reason. It was built in the 13th century and produced table salt continuously until 1996. The mine reaches a depth of 327 meters. It is so deep that it would easily fit the Eiffel Tower. Under the ground level you will find saline corridors, salt sculptures and statues, spectacular timber constructions, saline lakes and magnificent chambers chiselled out in rock salt.
During the guided tour you will experience the alluring mistery of the mine and listen to all the legends and secrets hidden underground for centuries. You will hear one of the most fascinating Polish legends inside the Chapel of St. Kinga. She was a princess who is known for bringing precious salt to Polish land. You will also see the only underground church in Europe! Wieliczka Salt Mine is a ‘must’ when you visit Poland!
