The tourist route ends in Daniłowicz Shaft station from where tourists exit the mine to the surface in a four-cage elevator. Each cage holds 9 persons ( 36 in total). The elevator moves at the speed 4m/s. According to the ancient tradition of constructing shafts stations, a modern presenting the patron of salt miners, St. Kinga, hangs on one of the walls on the shaft station.
The underground chapels, effigies of saints as well as miners greeting "God Bless" said at every meeting and farewell, are a testimony of the great piety of people working underground.
