Krakow. Hall Tower and Cloth Hall.

Krakow. Hall Tower and Cloth Hall.

Gothic Tower from the fourteenth century is inclined to the vertical by more than 50 centimeters as a result of powerful storms in the eighteenth century and is the only remnant of the town hall destroyed one hundred years later. In the basement of the tower was an inn called by contemporary chroniclers: cave of thieves, basement of swine or den of iniquity. And just behind the wall of the banquet hall, was prison dungeons called "Dorotka", where they tortured accused of the most serious crimes.

The bad tradition of the basement continued in the 50's of this century, where in the cafeteria - with always broken ventilation and heating - sat so-called difficult youth who loved to destroy premises.

Wieliczka. Weimar chamber.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine. Weimar chamber.

It is named after the German city of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who, in the eighteenth century, visited the Wieliczka while working on "Faust" (front of the entrance is his monument of salt). The chamber was formed in the usual way for the mine - from the top gained salt, descending lower and lower.

After finish the exploitation in the twentieth century, it was filled with brine and built viewing platforms.

Theoretically speaking drowning in the lake is impossible, but a few years ago in an adjacent underground Wessel lake drowned on a boat a few drunken men (water depth of 20 centimeters to 100 centimeters).

From this time abolished cruises and introduced underground prohibition.
