Wieliczka Salt Mine

Chapel of St. Kinga 120 meters deep
This mine was amazing. Almost the whole mine was build by using wood. Steel would rust :)

More hiking. Going to Giewont

The last part of the trip was really crazy. We had to use a steel rope to climb the mountain. Parents where pushing their kids up the mountain. :wall: Some parts where quite dangerous. Because of the limited space ontop, we had to wait to get there.

The top of Giewont. A very nice overview of the city Zakopane

Crawled threw some caves. During that day the outside was 35 degrees. Inside the cave was it nice and cool :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it and the pictures look awesome. Reminds me of my trip back home last year.

Had a bicycle once.
Heh, I did the very same trip minus the mountain climbing and the Wroclaw visit.

The mine is a fantastic place indeed.

@SLR I actually live in Poland, in Krakow to be precise and I would rather live in Autralia, believe me :) I've got a cousin there (Brisbane) and I can't wait to visit him even once... It's not such a dump like here I suppose. :)
