Program description

Tour starts in Kharkiv. Transfer Kharkiv-Soledar.

Soledar might not be a large city, but it is undoubtedly the salt capital of Ukraine. The name says it all - it can be translated as "the gift of salt". 

Small safety brief before descending into the mines.

Artemsil is a state company that produces about 5 million tons of salt in a year. 100 years of mining created an unbelievable labyrinth of caves. You will take an elevator to the bottom level - about 1000 ft down. 200 million years ago it was a bottom of the sea. Walls, floor, ceiling, sculptures and bas-reliefs - everything here is salt, sparking in the light. The air itself is so salty that it has healing properties. An hour or two in this mine is like a day at the seaside. It is great for your breathing, skin, makes you heal faster. 

The size of the greatest cave is unbelievable. It is almost 100 ft high, 45 ft wide. Once it became a field for a soccer game (football). Few concerts were held, and musicians were greatly impressed by its acoustics. You will also see smaller caves and tunnels, the machinery for underground mining. 
Free time to take pictures and we`re heading back up.
