Underground Labyrinth

These carpet patterns on the walls are not manmade, they are created by nature. These are Sylvinite mines in the town of Berezniki. It is a huge underground labyrinth, located at a depth of -400m. The Sylvinite ore, which is excavated here, is used for production of potassium fertilizers.
