Krakow Off The Beaten Path: 270 reviews and 404 photos
This is a picture of the first room that you will be taken to in the mine.
Over the centuries, devout, and superstitious, miners have carved fabulous figures, monuments and altars out of the salt mines? walls.
Due to the conditions that the miners used to work in, they did not always get a chance to visit a church during normal hours, so they carved out altars that they could worship at, during their break.
This room contained just such an altar that the miners used to worship at. Unfortunately, my camera was not good enough to take the whole room as the alter was in a dimly lit area.
