The Wieliczka Salt Mine, one of the world’s oldest complete with statues and a church, is now on Google Maps Street View.

Google obtains the 360-degree street-level imagery by equipping people with 40-pound backpacks and a 15-lens camera system. Landmarks, parks, and small businesses have all gotten the street view treatment. The Grand Canyon was put up on Google Maps Street View earlier this year.

The mine was built in the 13th century and produced table salt continuously until 2007.
