<a href='https://www.hellotravel.com/poland/blessed-kinga-chapel' class='c3'>Blessed Kinga Chapel, Poland</a>

This church is located in the Bochnia salt mine in Poland that happens to be the oldest of its kind. Blessed Kinga Chapel is situated at Wazyn Chamber in the mine and is a construction totally done with salt. Established in 1747, this church consists pulpit sculpted in salt, different salt figures and even some salt altars. It is amazing to think of a church made in the heart of a salt mine that was active for more than 750 years. However, the mine is now basically used as a tourist spot as salt extraction has been lessened.

If the former is not enough, take the St. Kinga?s Chapel in Wieliczka salt mine of Poland. We can't help wondering on the fact that it is located 101 meter underground and was created from a block of salt back in 1896! The interior of the Chapel is decorated with various structures carved in salt which took more than a 100 years for formation. This is evident from the chandeliers that grace the church and are made from salt blocks.

Talking of unique creations and France missing out! Thats rare. Here come a French wonder- the Church of Saint Jean. This gem of a church is located in Aubeterre village in Southern France. The structure of the church is in the monolithic type of architecture with a length of 88 feet, width of 52 feet and it touches 20 meter mark in altitude.

The fairy tale like village of Aubeterre is a perfect setting for this charming creation. Be on the ground, elevated or underground, the eternal capacity of a church to bring solace and peace to our distraught minds is a unanimous truth. But what makes these churches under title different from others is the paradoxical concept of going deep down earth for sublimity rather than taking a flight towards heaven.
