Wieliczka Salt Mine

On Saturday, 26 September 2020, an official closing ceremony of an exhibition presented in the Stanisław Staszic Chamber 125 metres underground took place.

 The exhibition entitled “Indonesia: The Portrait of Diversity and Religious Harmony” was presented in the Wieliczka underground since 18 August this year, where visitors touring the Tourist Route could explore it for more than a month. The closing ceremony was also attended by invited guests, including representatives of the Indonesian diplomatic mission to Poland headed by Ms. Siti Nugraha Mauludiah, Ambassador of Indonesia to Poland and Mr. Marian Skrzypiec, Honorary Consul of Indonesia in Krakow. 

Until early afternoon, visitors also had an opportunity to listen to the Warsaw Gamelan Group — Polish-Indonesian gamelan orchestra founded by students and graduates of the Institute of Musicology of the University of Warsaw and a former employee of the Embassy of Indonesia in Warsaw, Soegianto Darmonegoro. The WGG presents traditional music of Java (karawitan Jawa), shadow theatre (wayang kulit) and dances, but their repertoire also includes popular Java music (dangdut, campur sari) and new compositions by contemporary Indonesian and Western composers. The invited guests and visitors touring Wieliczka’s underground galleries and chambers also admired the performances by dancers Diah Anggraini Martin and Dennissee Peralta Matlingiewicz.
