The miners turned the dark dreary Poland salt mine into a majestic royal location. Giant salt-crystal chandeliers light the underground complex. Salt carved monuments decorate the walls for tourists to explore. The atmosphere inside is said to be excellent for those suffering from a number of types of respiratory illnesses, and guests can now stay at a special health center/resort there.1.jpg

In the early 1900s, the Kinga Chapel was formed and filled with large biblical icons. Beautifully detailed sculptures help to relive over a thousand years of salty history.4.jpg

Tourists from all over the world are guided through the labyrinthine tunnels of the mine.6.jpg
