    It’s neither the first, nor the deepest underground hotel in the world! Stop spreading misinformation of low IQs!
    Two most commonly known Polish salt mines, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, offer their guests a night underground. In Wieliczka, you can spend a night in Komora Słowackiego (editor’s translation: Słowacki’s Chamber), at 135 metres underground. In Bochnia, the chambers for guests are as deep as 250 meters underground!
