"WIELICZKA" SALT MINE
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. Today, the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine combines many centuries of tradition and modernity, the history of several hundred years and an underground metropolis with extensive infrastructure.
The mine is a product of work of tens of generations of miners, a monument to the history of Poland and to the Polish nation – a brand, present in Polish consciousness for centuries.
JAN HALUSZKA CHAMBER
The chamber is named after Jan Haluszka, a former counsellor and mining administrator of the Wieliczka Saltworks during the Austrian occupation in the 19th c. An interesting, vault-like shape of the chamber and the magnificent walls carved in green rock salt 135 meters underground have been admired by numerous public figures.
The mine guest book records entries of persons who at the moment when they visited the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine were world leaders, among them U. S. President George Bush and NATO Secretary General Javier Solana.
