The deep faith of miners

Time to set out on a trip along the religious route of the Wieliczka Mine.
Here, faith gives you strength for every step.
You will see sacral sculptures carved in salt, unique views,
beautiful chambers, and among them the most magnificent – St Kinga’s Chapel.

On the “God Bless” Pilgrims’ Route:

  • Underground, there are places of worship that have been created over the centuries from the great need of the heart. Places where prayers were quietly recited and places where religious celebrations are still being held.

  • A mass celebrated in an underground chapel can be a deep spiritual experience and a kind of culmination to the journey.
