"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.

This is the photo inside The St. Kinga's Chapel.
At the depth of 101 meters this is a masterpiece created by the miner sculptures : The brothers Jozef & Tomasz Markowski & Antoni Wyrodek.
Sorry that my photo doesn't really show the area of the chapel but it's a big place/area & my cheap camera couldn't really capture the atmospehere because of poor lightings.
