What To Expect
Wieliczka Salt Mine is a unique world-class attraction, included in the UNESCO "Human Heritage" List. According to a legend, salt resources were brought here from Hungary by Blessed Kinga, who married a Polish king. She dropped a ring to a Hungarian salt mine shaft to say "farewell" to her homeland. Salt recourses were soon discovered in Wieliczka. When excavation started - Kinga's ring was found in a first salt lump.
A tour of the Mine includes beautiful chapels sculpted in salt (Blessed Kinga's chapel is the most beautiful one), spacious chambers, crystal grottoes and underground ponds. All this at average depth of 250 m below the ground level.
