Kopalnia soli "Wieliczka"
The only salt mine in the world preserved in such excellent condition. See why it was included in the first UNESCO World Heritage List and why it attracts more than a million tourists every year. “The historic Wieliczka Salt Mine is the only mining facility in the world operating continuously from the Middle Ages to the present. Its original excavations (walkways, slipways, mining chambers, lakes, shafts), with a total length of around 300 km, are located on 9 levels, reaching 327 m deep and illustrating all stages of the development of mining technology in particular historical epochs.” This fragment comes from justification for the entry of the Wieliczka Salt Mine on the first UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List on September 8, 1978 as one of the first 12 sites from around the world. Indeed, the history of Wieliczka, dating back to the Middle Ages, is a reflection of the development of mining techniques, the shaping of work organization and management, and the emergence of legal regulations in the mining industry.
