Wieliczka Salt Mines first tourist trail was established at the turn of the 19th century. A couple of centuries later in 1978, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers where traces of mining activity have been preserved, along with sacred artworks depicting the Mines history as well as local legends. Additionally, the Mines microclimate has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies.
