Another 240 million years ago, pressed in powerful (and sometimes their thickness is over a kilometer) layers of solid rock this salt under the influence of numerous natural disasters tectonic changes were hidden all the layers of different rock deposits. Nowadays, it is mined in deep mines.

Then across Europe on the site of the old salt mines underground sanatorium, which specialized in the prevention and treatment of various diseases through inhalation of ionized air.
