The Wieliczka salt mine is very impressive and the guided tours are complete and interesting. That place is filled with interesting pieces of art and it adds depth to the understanding of the Polish culture.

I didn't see any fungus, all is salt. Bear in mind that part of the mine is used for respiratory problems treatment.
