Geopark in KrobicaIn 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.
