Royal Salt Mine "Wieliczka" #2

This is another postcard of the Salt Mine, showing the Wessel Chamber, which is used as a sanatorium.
I did a little googling and I learned that it is one of the oldest salt mines, still working [they started mining salt there in the 13th century] and in 1978 it became an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
