New offer - Miner's Route!
Feel like a miner for one day!
Adults and children (10-year-old and older), welcome and visit new route. 

Covered in working clothes and armed with mining equipment, you will no longer feel like a tourist, as you descend into the darkness by the oldest existing mine shaft, the Regis. You will be attributed a mining profession and tasks by the guide, known at the mine as the charge-man, who will carefully evaluate their execution. Now you become a novice miner and start to learn the ropes of this demanding profession guided by the light of your mining lamp.

The trail, located far off the busy Tourist Route, allows to discover the inner workings of the mine. You will measure the concentration of methane, dig and transport salt, set the path and explore unknown chambers. You will experience the daily routine of underground life and the secrets of mining traditions and rituals, and experience first-hand the real taste of miner's work.

The visit of the Miners’ Route takes about 3 hours. It is made in groups of maximum 20 people, so earlier reservations are recommended.
