Salt in Poland. Contemporary production centers.

The exhibition in the Saltworks Castle will present the most important salt production centres in Poland, such as the rock salt mines in Kłodawa or Polkowice-Sieroszowice, and also some less known sites of brine exploitation and salt production.

Some of these places, like e.g. the Saltworks in Ciechocinek, constitute a unique industrial monument, where table salt has been continuously produced in a traditional way for 185 years.

The Inowrocław Salt Mines, “SOLINO S.A.”, with yearly brine extraction of about 9,000,000 m³ in the mines in Góra and Mogilno, are undeniably leading the way among the Polish mining plants that exploit and sell brine.

The exhibition contains maps, cross-sections, outlines, photos of mining facilities and interesting geological excavations, as well as the specimen of salt rocks and saltworks products. Visitors will be able to see some colourful specimen of salt rocks from the Zechstein salt beds, as well as salt products used in various industries including table salt, road salt or wide range of cosmetic salt.

Additionally, brine products used for treatment will be presented. In particular, the original brine that has been exploited in Zabłocie for over 120 years now is worth to be mentioned because of the world highest content of iodine reaching 140 mg per litre.

The whole exposition aims at providing the visitor with the current state of exploitation of salt deposits and the methods of obtaining and utilizing the so-called “white gold” on the Polish salt market.

 The author of the exhibition is Mr Rafał Zadak.

The exhibition will be open for visitors from 5 July to 15 October 2017 in the Saltworks Castle.
