“Street painting, somewhat faded”
Review of Solny Swiat

Wieliczka town is world recognised for its salt mine. No wonder that they try to promote those mines in every possible way. I get that this street painting in Wieliczka main square is an original way of promoting the town. There's a 3D composition showing one of the corridors in the mine. There's only one place, where the painting shows it's glory - from the side or form the end it's just a colour blur. But when you find the spot - it all looks very nice, apart from the paint starting to fade, so it would need renovation soon. One of the ends of the painting is arranged as a monument to those who worked in the salt mines.

very interesting and unusual.
amazing skill and very relevant to this city which was in the past a major salt mining center in europe. If there, look for it and you will find it easily in this city square, known as "Rynek Gorny".

We were exploring the area near the salt mines and reached the Wieliczka's "Market Square" He we found a 3d art work and I must confess that it was quite interesting to look at.

Paintings on the floor starts to peel of however the 3D illusion is still visible. Located inside the main square, right between the tourist mine entrance and the miners mine entrance, easily spotted. Stand on the sign on the floor to see the 3D effect best.
