UAE Gets Its Largest Man-Made Salt Cave Inspired By Poland’s Salt Mines

In modern society, salt is more often associated with health risks on the kitchen table, but in some regions of Europe, it’s a crucial element in holistic therapies. Sheikh Dr Saeed bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan officially opened the largest man-made salt cave in the Middle East and the GCC on Wednesday. The earliest salt mine in Krakow, Poland, is the inspiration for The Salt Cave.

Halotherapy, commonly known as salt therapy, has therapeutic benefits (HT, from the Greek word halos, for salt). The salt treatment was born in the 19th century and has been used as a non-invasive cure for various skin and respiratory conditions. However, the UAE is just catching on, with two salt therapy facilities opening in the last three months.

In Mbazzarah Al Khadra, the officials officially opened Al Ain City, the cave in the presence of Salem Al Rashidi and Suwaidan Saeed Al Katbi. He is the director of the city municipality.
