    The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the oldest enterprises in Europe. It has supplied salt to the tables of almost the whole Europe.

    Nowadays, it is one of the most frequently visited places in Poland, where intensive conservation works are carried out in order to protect historical sites. With its vast material culture heritage and wealth of inanimate nature, the Wieliczka underground mine is a unique monument on a global scale.

    Today, the mine is still an active mining facility, with unique culture, art and traditions dating back many centuries.

    The Wieliczka Salt Mine is a monument with centuries of history and cultural heritage, whose rank is emphasised by its presence on the First UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List. The unique work of nature touched by the hand of man creates a harmonious whole and attracts like a magnet for tourists wishing to discover the mysteries hidden underground. The mine is also an original venue for banquets and concerts.

    The underground banquet halls amaze with natural scenery not seen anywhere else. The salt walls shining in shades of grey and silver in the light of crystal chandeliers are very impressive. The conference dinner will take place more than 100 metres below ground. We assure you that you will be enchanted by this venue.

    The conference dinner will be preceded by a tour of the mine so we advise that you wear comfortable shoes. It is also worth noting that underground the air temperature is lower than on the surface.
