The Miners’ Route is more than a sightseeing tour!

It’s a big, engaging adventure. The group of tourists will transform into apprentice miners, learning the underground trade in practice! Are you ready for the challenge?

On the Miners’ Route:

  • The group will explore atmospheric chambers in which darkness is illuminated only by mining lamps.

  • A lot of work awaits the group, during one shift there will be, among others, measurement of methane concentration, weaving of ropes, efficient use of the map, as well as a saw and shovel.

  • As a reward, each member of the group will receive a commemorative certificate confirming that they have taken their first steps in the mining profession.
