Wieliczka Salt Mine

by Adriana Leal Espinoza | March 19, 2023 4:59 PM

Today was an extraordinary day! We had the opportunity to visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Krakow, Poland. It was an amazing experience to see this place and learn about its history and how it was used in the past. The tour gave us insight into how salt has been mined since the Middle Ages. We were able to explore the underground chambers, galleries, chapels and statues carved out of salt, which were truly breathtaking. It was a wonderful day!

Have you ever heard of a salt mine filled with sculptures made out of salt? Well, this is exactly what you will find in the Wieliczka Salt Mine in Poland. It is an incredible feat of engineering and artistry, as everything you see in the pictures is made out of salt! From intricate carvings to detailed statues, it's a sight to behold.

Our last day in Poland was filled with joy and gratitude. We were able to enjoy the beauty of the country and celebrate all that God had done in our lives during our mission trip. We had a time to debrief and reflect on the experiences we shared together, as well as the lessons we learned along the way. It was truly an unforgettable trip, one that reminded us of God's goodness and faithfulness.
