[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Wieliczka salt mine

The salt mine still exists as a tourist attraction but it stopped commercial production, I think, in the 1990s.  It is very near to Krakow (south of it) and about an hour's drive from Oswieciem (Auschwitz) to the west.  We visited both in the same day last year.  Both are well worth the visit.  The salt mine is beautiful and inspiring.  Auschwitz is very interesting historically but also depressing emotionally.

Neither is located in former Russian Poland but it is not far to get there from anywhere else in Poland.

I received this, and as you can see it has been forwarded a lot of times.  so, I am wondering if this mine does exist as mentioned and is it still a tourist attraction?   Also where in poland is it?     It sounds so interesting.   Thanks for any info about this.
