Chinese delegation pays a visit to the underground
The official delegation from China visited the Wieliczka mine. The guests were impressed by the Tourist Route, which they toured with great attention and interest.
One of the members of the delegation was Mr Ma Biao, Vice-Chairman of the National Committee of Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and Vice-President of the Chinese People’s Association for Peace and Disarmament. The guests were welcomed by Zbigniew Zarębski, Chairman of Kopalnia Soli “Wieliczka” S.A. and Damian Konieczny, Chairman of Kopalnia Soli “Wieliczka” Trasa Turystyczna.
Mr Ma emphasised that Poles should be proud of such an extraordinary monument as the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine. He also admitted that thanks to his visit to the Wieliczka underground, he fully understood why it was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, as well as why it was one of the first sites to be distinguished in this way.
The guests signed the commemorative Visitors’ Book. Mr Ma Biao will be reminded of the salt world by the sculpture prepared for him – out of salt, of course – by the talented Wieliczka miners.
