Inside the Pieskowa Skała Chamber in the salt mine in Wieliczka.

"The Pieskowa Skała Chamber is among the most beautiful places in the mine. The stratified deposit began to be mined in the 17th century, which resulted in a space linking two adjacent levels. In the chamber, parts of the original stairs carved in salt in the 17th century have been preserved. It was up those stairs that miners carried fine salt in special bags or wooden troughs." (From the official website).

The Chapel of the Holy Cross in the salt mine in Wieliczka.

"The chapel was a votive offering for saving the mine from a catastrophic leak in the mid-19th century. The varied furnishing of the chapel include items from several places of worship in the mine. The altar is placed in a niche surrounded by a wooden structure and topped with an arc. In the centre of the altar, a wooden Baroque sculpture of Christ Crucified is placed. In front of the altar, salt figures of monks are found. Opposite, a 17th-century polychrome figure of Our Lady Victorious is to be seen." (From the official website).

The Chapel of Saint Kinga, the most famous underground chamber of the salt mine in Wieliczka.

"The Saint Kinga’s Chapel is the most impressive and opulent of underground temples. The chamber, carved in a block of salt, has been a place of worship since 1896. The chapel ornamentation has been created over a period of more than a hundred years. From late 19th century until 1963, the sculpting was conducted by self-taught miners-sculptors, Józef and Tomasz Markowski and Antoni Wyrodek. Their work is continued by the new generation of miners, who create new sculpting projects." (From the official website).
