An exquisite tourist attraction was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List was added in July 2017 -  Tarnowskie Gory Lead-Silver-Zinc Mine and its Underground Water Management System.

It is located in Upper Silesia, in southern Poland, one of the main mining areas of central Europe.  The mine includes the entire underground mine with adits, shafts, galleries and other features of the water management system. Most of the property is situated underground while the surface mining topography features relics of shafts and waste heaps, as well as the remains of the 19th century steam water pumping station.

The labyrinth of mining excavations dates back to the 15th century but its development continued over five hundred years to 20th century.  Today it is a unique tourist attraction with a route over one mile long, including a part covered by boat, is open to public.  The visitors can see only a small part of the extensive labyrinth of corridors.  The tour includes three shafts: Angel, Viper and God Bless  There is also a mining museum which tells you history of the mine and the area.
