St. Kinga’s Chapel | Wieliczka, Poland

,

The Wieliczka Salt Mine and especially the St. Kinga’s Chapel 101m below ground level are exceptional. A huge room (465m² and 11m high) so deep underground, enlightened by chandeliers and ornamented with numerous pieces of art. But the most impressive for me was the several hundred years old altar made from salt.

The Chapel was named after Saint Kinga of Poland who also is the patroness of the salt miners. And the Chapel is still used! Up to 400 people fit in for church services, concerts or even weddings.
