All of us have destinations in mind that we wish to visit someday. But since we’re in a pandemic, it’s quite difficult for all of us to check off even one from our list of dream destinations.

Nevertheless, thanks to social media for existing as we can see lots of photos and videos of the places that we’ve been wanting to go to.

Have you heard about the Wieliczka salt mine?

I bet this place would be added to your dream destinations. It is a famous tourist spot in Poland and everything about it is beautiful.

In this underground beaut, you’ll see lakes, chapels, and even chandeliers. And all of them are made out of salt. Yup. It’s beyond amazing.

On Instagram, we’ve seen lots of photos that were taken in this place and all of them are lovely. Here are some of them:

1. This is remarkable.
