Be amazed by the superstition that drove miners to carve figures, monuments, and alterpieces into the walls of an 800-year-old salt mine deep in the countryside. Due to the mine's historical importance and the legends surrounding the carvings, the mine is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Feel the atmosphere change as you descend the 400 steps into the salt mine, which feels like entering a vast underground city, with huge caverns and underground lakes. This subterranean world has earned itself a considerable reputation thanks to the miner's creativity, carving chapels out of the walls, as deep as 1,073 feet (327 m) below the surface.

Enter the largest of the chapels dedicated to St. Kinga, the historic patron saint of miners. This underground church is richly decorated with chandeliers, sculptures, and religious figures all incredibly carved out of salt. As you follow the 1.5 mile (2.5 km) walk, pass statues dating from the end of the 18th century depicting mythical, historical, and religious figures.
