"Inside The Salt Mine of Wieliczka..." Wieliczka Things to Do Tip by coceng

Wieliczka Things to Do: 57 reviews and 94 photos

 
 

Here are the photos that I took inside The Wieliczka Salt Mine.
Nature first created this mine about 20 million years ago !
The mine now has a labyrinth of tunnels with 9 levels but we could only visit the first 3 upper levels; From 64 to 135 meter below the ground.

After we bought the ticket, we shall wait for our group, accompanied by a tour guide...decends to the ground by taking stairs/steps..I lost count how many stairs but it looked like it was going forever....like I left the above ground in my previous life !

Once we are down there, we would enter one room/cell which has displays of many structures/statues like the ones on the left...The atmosphere is pretty dimly lit, so the salt statues look almost real !

The photo shows one of them...silhuette amidst the walls of the salt mine !

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
