Week 11 : Mini Links : The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine of Poland



13. 6 million years ago, Wieliczka salt deposits formed under Wieliczka, Poland . Today, the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine is one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland. Each year it is visited by more than one million tourists from all over the world. It is also a world class monument, featuring among twelve objects on the UNESCO’s World Cultural and Natural Heritage List. (www.wieliczka-saltmine.com/about-the-mine)

Fascinating things about the mine:

– There are 5 ‘routes’ that you can enjoy in the mine – the Tourist route, the Miners route, the Mysteries of the Wieliczka Mine, the Pilgrims’ Route and for parents with kids, they can go on the Mine for Grownups and The  Little Ones.

– There are 20 chambers to visit – the Chapel of St. King is the most brilliant one. And the chandeliers are made of salt!

– You can hold business conferences here at the historic underground spaces of the Wieliczka salt mine.


– And you can also have your wedding reception here underground – how cool is that literally!

(We had ours above – ground! At Burkhill Hall at Singapore Botanic Gardens!)

– The salt mine consists of almost 2,400 chambers connected with corridors 245 km long in total. All this is situated on nine levels at the depth ranging from 64 to 327 metres.

– There is an underground restaurant.

I am fascinated by this and will remember to visit this place if we visit Poland – it is accessible via Krakow.
