Mining shaft

Shaft – the oldest mining shaft in Wieliczka from the middle of the 13th century. Its floor projection is in the shape of a rectangle with dimensions of 3.4 m x 2.4 m. Its actual depth remains unknown (research was stopped at a depth of 7 m); it is assumed that its deepening was completed before it reached the salt deposit.
