Gala Dinner at Wieliczka Salt Mine
3rd September, 18:00 (6 pm.)
We cordially invite you to take part in the gala dinner in the salt mine, preceded by a short guided tour.
The saline underground is an ideal venue for a large, professional corporate event up to 600 participants, or an intimate meeting among friends. Wieliczka Salt Mine is visited by over one million tourists each year.
Going down the 380 steps into the salt mine you may have the impression of entering a magical underground city, full of mysterious caves, amazing underground lakes, majestic designs and unique salt carvings. The tourist route in the Salt Mine, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, is almost 3 km long and consist of winding corridors, 800 steps and a descend to a depth of 135 meters underground. It begins at the Daniłowicz Shaft, where the visitors meet their guide who, while showing them around, will tell them about the history and secrets of the mine, forces of nature that rule the mine, and the ethos of hard work of many generations of miners. Going down deeper and deeper, the visitors will see unusual places, take pleasure in watching the light spectacle on the banks of one of the saline lakes, and learn the famous legend of Princess Kinga, who brought a wealth of salt into the Polish soil. In the middle of the route there is St. Kinga's Chapel, a wonderful chapel dedicated to the patron saint of salt miners, decorated with extraordinary salt artworks. The captivating interior of the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine is a perfect setting for organising a training session, a banquet, a ball, a concert, a press conference or an unforgettable wedding.
