Salt from Wieliczka has curative pro­perties. It is rich in microelements, es­pecially magnesium compounds. Con­sumption of this salt eliminates exces­sive irritability and aggressive inclina­tions. It enhances mental activity and relieves states of nervous exhaustion. These and other properties of the Wieli­czka salt prompted the establishment of an underground sanatorium at 211 m. The exceptional microclimate is helpful in the treatment of different aillments, such as rheumatism and allergies. The Wieliczka sanatorium is well known in Poland as well as abroad.
