With over 1 million visitors annually, the Wieliczka Salt Mine (or Kopalnia soli Wieliczka) are one of Poland’s most popular tourist attractions! Mining at the site only ended in 1996, but it’s been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978 and it’s a fascinating example of the centuries-old tradition of salt mining. With underground lakes and chapels, plus tunnels where you can enjoy the healing salt microclimate, visitors can take the official tour, enjoy a concert, or even watch a theatrical performance!
