The Salt Mine reaches a depth of 327 meters! The most impressive of all underground chambers, St. Kinga’s Chapel is located 101 m under ground. This 54 m long and almost 12 m high stunning chapel is completely carved in salt. Its beautiful interiors were designed to resemble wooden walls like in medieval churches. The chapel is lit by several chandeliers made out of salt crystals.

You can also choose to visit he mine by Miners’ Route. For this option you’ll get special clothes and professional equipment. A guide will lead you through unknown chambers making you feel as a real miner. This includes squeezing, kneeling down and even crawling so the physical effort is much bigger than during the standard track.
