Worth preserving and visiting

Wieliczka was inscribed in 1978 on the UNESCO World Heritage List of places of natural and cultural heritage of outstanding value to humanity. UNESCO describes Wieliczka thus:

“This deposit of rock salt in Wieliczka-Bochnia has been mined since the 13th century. Spread over nine levels, it has 300 km of galleries with works of art, altars, and statues sculpted in the salt, making a fascinating pilgrimage into the past of a major industrial undertaking.”
