Today, Google added images from the 800-year-old Wieliczka Salt Mine in Wieliczka, Poland, to the company's Street View product in Google Maps. The imagery is part of the company's UNESCO World Heritage series and takes us inside the 187 mile long, 1,000 foot deep salt mine. The imagery that has been posted includes three hand carved full-size chapels and a massive cathedral that is carved from the natural gray salt deposits.
