Wieliczka salt mine: my piece for Rough Guides

Last winter the British Guild of Travel Writers had its AGM in  Poland. As part of this we visited the Wieliczka salt mine, which dates back to the 13th century and features the famous underground salt chapel.

We also did the Miner’s Route tour of the mine, finding out what life was like for the people who mined salt here. You can read my article about this tour for Rough Guides here.
