Wieliczka deposit stretches latitudinal and is 10 km high and 1.5 km wide.
Within the deposit two parts of varied geological structure can be distinguished: the lower one formed as a result of heavily deformed layers and the upper one in a form of massive clusters which look as if they have been stuck in a pie. This structure, which consists of nine exploitation levels, as many as there are types of salt, reflects the underground excavation and tunnel system.
