The historic silver mine tour is accompanied by a qualified guide, which tells the interesting story of this place. Each participant receives a protective helmet.

The excursion route measuring 1740 m, starts from the exit from elevator shafts to the underground corridors, located 40 m below the surface. During the tour we will see, among others: the "Silver" chamber, with preserved ceilings and reconstruction of the miners' workplace with tools and unique small lake, the chamber "Zawałowa" with miners' tools, boulders, dolomite stones, mining oil lamps, wooden carts from the end of the eighteenth century, with loading; as well as the largest "Low" chamber, the surface of which is 2 thousand m2 a height of 1 m. When passing the buried "God bless you" shaft, we will get to the water harbor, from where the a further 270 m long is taken on boats. It is one of the most interesting attractions while visiting, especially popular among the younger visitors. Upon arrival the guide takes us through the next shafts, "Blackadder" and "Angel," where again we enter the elevator shafts to the surface.

The tour lasts about 1.5 hours.

Throughout the year, the temperature at the stays constant at about 10°C, so in the summer you should bring a warm jacket, comfortable shoes and socks.
