Wielczka Salt Mine TourOctober 13 in Poland
After spending 4 hours at the 2 concentration and death camps. We boarded our mini bus for a 1 hour 25 minute ride to the Unesco World Heritage site . This mine has been around since 1200 AD.
We descended 840 steps to start our tour.
We walked over 2 km and we only saw 1% of the mine. We got down to level 3 which is 135 meters deep.
Throughout the mine are all these areas where the miners have done carvings. They were amazing. At one spot there is a huge cavern where they had a big underground chapel.
The mine is still active but not as much as their main source of revenue is tourism as they get over 1. 2 million visitors a year.
It was very interesting to see and learn about the mine as see the wonderful carvings.Read more
