Wieliczka - Poland (UNESCO WHS)

This is a card I picked myself for the private swap I made with Bodexs from Poland. It is a card of the the Historic Salt Mine "Wieliczka". It shows the Janowice Chamber (depth 63,8 m.), which worked in the first half of the 17th century. The rock-salt sculptures "The Great Legend" (Mieczyslaw Kluzek, 1967) show the legendary moment, when a miner represented St. Kinga with her ring.
I think it is an adorable card and I hope to see this area one day.
