We are in the middle of our underground trip in salt mine. This route is very interesting and amazing one in my opinion. Salt Mine was very famous in the previous centuries. So in 1790 Goethe -well known German poet visited it. In 1790 Goethe accompanied the Prince of Weimar in his visit of the Wieliczka Mine. The great poet was 40 years old then and was at that time working on the first part of "Faust".Apart from being a man of literature , he also held many state positions, at hat time, one of them was being responsible for the mines of the Weimar Republic, therefore his visit to Wieliczka.
