Overview
The mine, built in the 13th century, produced table salt continuously until 2007, as one of the world's oldest salt mines still in operation.  The mine's attractions include dozens of statues, three chapels and an entire cathedral that has been carved out of the rock salt by the miners. The Wieliczka mine is often referred to as "the Underground Salt Cathedral of Poland." In 1978 it was placed on the original UNESCO list of the World Heritage Sites.Today, the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine combines many centuries of tradition and modernity, the history of several hundred years and an underground metropolis with extensive infrastructure.

You need to be reasonably fit for this tour as it involves a fair bit of stairs and walking but it is a most impressive and enjoyable tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and humorous and the whole trip including being picked up from our apartment was on time and took 3.5 hrs

This is just a tourist attraction now as the salt seam is worked out. However, what a spectacle. The guide was excellent, the route taken very clever. Large chambers, lakes, a chapel and scuptures aplenty. A real visit with a difference, including a very rapid accent to the
