Tarnowskie Gory - Old mine

A former mine which had been worked for lead and silver. The mine was closed but the labyrinth of galleries, caverns and drainage tunnels remained open, and it was adapted to the requirements of tourists. Two underground tourist routes were arranged. The highlight, though, is a motorboat trip along the Black Trout Shaft, a part of the flooded drainage tunnels that were excavated as needs arose. There is also a Museum of mining and a skansen of steam engines.
