Salt from Wieliczka has curative pro­perties. It is rich in microelements, es­pecially magnesium compounds. Con­sumption of this salt eliminates exces­sive irritability and aggressive inclina­tions. It enhances mental activity and relieves states of nervous exhaustion. These and other properties of the Wieli­czka salt prompted the establishment of an underground sanatorium at 211 m. The exceptional microclimate is helpful in the treatment of different aillments, such as rheumatism and allergies. The Wieliczka sanatorium is well known in Poland as well as abroad.

The mine and the museum of Old Salt mines are toured with experien­ced guides, who are knowledgeable about the Mine’s history as well as its legends and mysteries. The excellent sanatorium can be open to you if you contact the Poland Active.The underground tour takes about three hours.
