Poland: Soult Mines of Wieliczka
It Is one of the most ancient active mines of salt of the world.

The world has many things and places that people do not know that exist .It is a
pity that not every one takes care of that as it should be..
The previous information about nature wonders, gives the idea of every place or thing
we are dealing with..
We could say that all the nature wonders are very amazing and interesting but
We like the mines of salt in Poland the most . It is unbelievable that from salt
people could make so many things like for example a chandelier or to carve in
statues of famous and mythical prominent figures.
I would like to invite you to investigate about this interesting topic.
