Full description

After meeting your guide, set off on a journey of discovery as you explore the mine's unique underground interactive exhibition. Experience the history of this extraordinary place in a very special way. 

On the tour, you will be transported back in time to the kingdom of Bolesław V The Chaste and Princess Kinga, the time when the mine was founded. Feel the ghosts of Polish kings, miners and the legendary Cistercian Order which began creation of the mine as you listen to your professional guide. Over 3 hours, descend into underground caverns where the temperature is constantly a chilly 15ºC.
