Or a spring break destination for CHUDs. In the Ukrainian town of Soledar, an unused salt mine 300 meters underground has become a tourist attraction thanks to its ornate passageways.

A church, soccer arena, and sanitarium have been carved out of the salt, giving the mine the veneer of the Mines of Moria with high blood pressure or a secret Rebel outpost on Planet Condiment. These nooks and crannies look so cozy you'll want to lick the ceiling, and here's another Ukrainian speleotherapy site.

Gorgeous space.

I'm aware of a similar salt mind in Poland that has been used as a performance space for classical and soundtrack music.

This space would also be AWESOME for a multimedia show and rave.
