Places of Interest – Salt Mine



Dokument 4407 [LANG1]
Since many centuries ago the Wieliczka Salt Mine has not ceased to amaze tourists from around the world.
 
Underground lakes and excavations, chapels, sculptures and reliefs made in salt astonish with their beauty. The charm of this place draws over a million tourists annually. “The historic Salt Mine in Wieliczka is the only mining site in the world functioning continuously since the Middle Ages. Its original excavations (longitudinals, traverses, chambers, lakes, as well as minor and major shafts) are located on nine levels and extend for the total of about 300 kilometres: reaching the depth of 327 metres they illustrate all the stages of mining technology development over time.” The quotation comes from the justification for entering the Wieliczka Salt Mine on UNESCO's First World List of Cultural and Natural Heritage, on September 8, 1978 together with 11 other sites from around the world. Indeed, the Wieliczka Mine reflects the introduction of industry legislation, the progress of mining technology, and the development of work organisation and management since the Middle Ages.
 
We invite you to attend thematic events, whose scenario is based on Wieliczka legends and traditions, and mining rituals. The participants of underground contests actively participate in specially prepared games while learning about the centuries-long history of the Mine. Welcome!
