Wieliczka

Best known as the site of one of the world's oldest salt mines, Wieliczka receives nearly a million visitors each year. Located just a short drive from Krakow's city center, the World Heritage-listed mine remained in operation for over seven centuries, finally shutting down in 2007. Today, the mine serves as a museum, allowing visitors to explore a ghostly underground world of elaborate salt chambers and deep pits hand-carved by generations of miners. Wieliczka itself remains a compact town within Krakow's metropolitan area, featuring several architecturally significant wooden churches designated as national historic monuments.
