Geopark in Krobica

In the footsteps of the former mining ore
Geopark in Mirsk - in the footsteps of the former mining ore

Geopark – tourist-educational path “In the footsteps of former mining of ore” is an underground, 350-meter passage through two tunnels and 13 stations along the 8-kilometer ground route. Walking tours start in the entrance showroom, where we go to the pit of the eighteenth-century tunnels of St. Leopold’s drift, from the between-level shaft of which we get to, located 10 meters above the tunnel sixteenth-century St. John’s drift, where you can see the preserved remains of excavations of tin ore. It is a one of a kind object in Poland and Europe preserved in its original shape.

Work is currently underway on an extension of the educational path for another mining post – through areas of Świeradów-Zdroj to Nove Mesto in the Czech Republic. In subsequent years it is planned to start the museum with working, old mining equipment such as water craft, crusher, and furnace.

We recommend:

  • 40-metre viewing tower in Mirsk with telescopes overlooking the Jizera.
