Salt Mine in Wieliczka is famous for its Europe’s oldest salt mine, which has been operating for at least 700 years. The Wieliczka salt mine is a unique tourist attraction, on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List (it is listed among the twelve top sites). The mine has a labyrinth of tunnels, pits, and chambers, all hewn out by hand from solid salt, beautifully adorned chapels, underground lakes, all located on the three upper levels of the irmo from 64 to 135 meters below the ground. Tourists can enjoy the three kilometre long trail and collection of objects related to the mine and mining.
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.
