The Wieliczka Salt Mines – over 700 years old – is one of the best known tourist attractions in the world. This unique monument of culture located only 10 kilometres outside of Cracow was created by many generations of Polish miners. Its beautiful and remarkable underground landscape, full of salt lakes, chambers and salt sculptures amazes everyone who visits this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
