The mine is a place visited by big numbers of tourists from Poland and abroad.

Geologically, the mine is located in the western part of the Subcarpathian Salt Deposits, which age is estimated to be about 14 million years. Wieliczka salt layer is about 10 km long, 600-1500m wide and thick from a few to about 400 meters.

Initially, salt was extracted through "salt sources" - spontaneous brine outflows. The first exploits date back to the Middle Neolithic period (3 thousand years BCE)Then, at the turn of the twelfth and thirteenth century, drilling of deeper wells began. Wieliczka became a place where shallow deposits of salt were found. Gradually, wells turned into shafts - paths of vertical communication with horizontally running sidewalks and excavations. As a result of dynamic changes, a mine was established.
