The Wieliczka Salt Mines near Krakow in Poland are simply one of the most amazing sights in the world and make for an essential part of any Europe trip. Among the very first sites to be awarded the honour of UNESCO World Heritage Site status back in 1978, the oldest operating salt mines in world history today attract around 1.2 million visitors a year who are spellbound by the labyrinth of rock salt carvings.
