Wieliczka Salt Mine, Krakow

Dating back to the 16th century this UNESCO listed salt mine is a labyrinth of almost 3km of meandering corridors, 135 meters underground. Amongst the 20 chambers, the Chapel of St. Kinga is the most spectacular- carved entirely from salt by 3 men, it sparkles beneath glittering salt crystal chandeliers. It’s with pointing out that, EVERYTHING, is salt- the floor tiles, the relief sculpted walls, the ceiling, chandeliers, the alter- everything! A must for any visit to Krakow.

Krakow, Poland

Blanketed in a snowy fog, a chorus of sleigh bells and the scent of spiced Mulled wine. Might it be Christmas?
