Prepare to be amazed at the devotion and superstition that drove miners to carve figures, monuments, and altarpieces into the walls of an 800-year-old salt mine.
As you walk down 400 steps into the salt mine, you get the impression of entering a vast underground city, complete with huge caverns and underground lakes. This underground world has earned a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list thanks to the creativity of the miners who carved chapels out of the walls, hundreds of metres below the surface.
You'll visit the largest of the chapels dedicated to St Kinga, the patron saint of miners. This subterranean church is richly decorated with chandeliers, sculptures, and religious figures carved out of salt. As you follow the 2 1/2-kilometre walk, you'll pass statues dating from the end of the 18th century depicting mythical, historical, and religious figures.
