Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour - The underground walkThe place has been created by the force of nature around 15 millions years ago. Underground caverns, richly decorated chambers, beautifully illuminated staircases, lakes and chapels were created by generations of miners for over 700 years.The venue was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978. Visitors take 380 steps down and then walk through Tourist Route- a series of chambers full of carvings and statues, next to beautifully illuminated underground lake, chapel of St. Kinga, which is completely decorated with salt.
Except of this can be seen a huge number of stalactites, stalagmites and other splendid geological formations. A rattling mining lift brings visitors back up to the surface. Temperature in Salt Mine about +14°C
