Every now and then this topic comes up... someone will post a pic of a location that's eerily like Uru in some way. Some time back, I mentioned the old salt mine in Wieliczka, Poland. I toured the mine during a choir trip back in '85, which was well before Uru. It occurred to me some time later that strolling around the Cavern was oddly reminiscent of the salt mine.

Anyway, I just found that Google Maps has added Street View coverage for the interior of the mine, so you can now explore it just as you would the Cavern. Note that pretty much everything you see in the chapel (linked below) is carved out of salt. There are other locations in the mine that are explorable as well.

Enjoy!

Cool! 8)

While we're talking salt mines, weburbanist have just posted some pics of this Romanian mine which looks rather like a number of URU locations, to my mind:
