st. kinga’s chapel is located 101 meters underground in the ancient wieliczka salt mine in southern poland. it was carved in rock salt by miners in honor of st. kinga whom they considered as their patroness. it’s also decorated with religious objects that were themselves fashioned out of salt rock.

you may click on the pictures for a better view. if they still appear blurry, it’s because they are. sorry, but my camera didn’t adapt well to the low light conditions.

st. kinga is one of the main attractions of the wieliczka salt mine that has been opened to the public since it ceased operations in 2007.

if you plan on visiting poland, i highly recommend including the wieliczka salt mine built in the 13th century in your itinerary. it’s about a half hour drive from krakow. i’m confident that you’d find it’s worth your time as i did.
