Google Earth Plug-in: Wieliczka Salt Mine

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The Wieliczka Salt Mine, located in the town of Wieliczka in southern Poland, lays within Krakůw metropolitan area. The mine had been in continuous operation, producing table salt since the 13th century until 2007 as one of the world's oldest operating salt mines (the oldest being in Bochnia, Poland, some 20 kilometers away from Wieliczka). The mine is a major tourist attraction, with about 1.2 million visitors per year. Commercial mining was discontinued in 1996 due to low salt prices and mine flooding.
