Soon enough there were around 20 people in a big drinking circle making the atmosphere really the best we had yet to experience on this trip. Several hours and vodkas later we all went out to a club just up the road from the ...

... displays depicting mining techniques. A lot of the sculptures were of religious figures, some were produced by the miners themselves while others were made by contemporary artists. The most impressive part of the tour was a chapel which was quite large and contained a number of sculptures and bas-relief art works, all of course carved from salt or into the salt walls. The floor itself was also salt patterned to look like tiles, ...
