Krakow was the next destination which resides in southern Poland. Within the metropolitan area lies the town of Wieliczka and under this town is the Wieliczka Salt Mine, one of the world's oldest operating salt mines.

However everything in this church is made out of salt – the altarpieces, chandeliers, sculptures and wall paneling – salt, salt, and more salt. The ...

We continued our exploration under the earth (see earlier posting on Unter Tage) by visiting the salt mine in Wieliczka. Less claustrophobic than the earlier mines we visited despite its over 300 meter depth, due to the spacious chambers that were dug out.
We entered a real underground world, with chapels, churches, statues and art, that almost made ...
