Imagine there is an infrastructure of tunnels underground to mine for salt. It’s a lot of hard work but why not have a little fun with it as well and bring some beauty and art underground. I’ve visited the salt mines which was part of Steemfest with a whole bunch of other conference attendees and everyone couldn’t believe their eyes.
Especially striking was the huge ballroom with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, of course made of salt as well. And I also loved the artwork crafted into blocks of salt. Statues and even paintings fully made out of salt. If you’re ever in Krakow, this is one of the must see attractions in the city.
