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.

Saltwater Lake | Wieliczka, Poland

You won’t have many opportunities to see a saltwater lake more than hundred meters underground. In the Wieliczka Salt Mine near Krakow you have that possibility, but only for short time. It’s just that the guided tour doesn’t give you much time to have a look on the lake. The lights are turned on only when a group is present, apart from that the lake lies in almost total darkness.
