|1248||salt mine established.|
This salt mine was established in AD 1248 and today it has an excellent reputation as a heath resort. Here patients suffering from respiratory aliments can seek relief in the Wazyn Chamber some 250m beneath the surface. This enormous chamber comprises a sports field, dancing floor, deck-chair saloon, restaurant, gift shop and over night accommodation. It is also available for hire for conferences, courses, and weddings.
