I like sharing the story of our salt cave.  The idea began when a family friend visited a salt cave while traveling in the United States. He came back and told us all about it. We realized there were no salt caves in Athens so we started doing our research. We started the salt cave in 2011 with the help of a team of people from Wieliczka, Poland! Wielicszka is known for its world-famous salt mine (a UNESCO world heritage site). All the construction of our salt cave in Glyfada came from Poland as they sent a team of people to Greece for two weeks to help us with the construction.  We’ve been offering the salt cave benefits for 8 years now and have plans for expansion.  🙂
