  • Interesting, good tour guide, beautiful setting. Good summary of the process of midieval silver making, and the lifestyle of the miners. You end up walking several hundred meters (yards) through ancient mine tunnels and experience the total darkness of a mine, but in the end, there is not much to see in the mine.
  • You can buy tickets for exibition n mining. Worth going.
  • Well worth the visit, excelent tour through the underground, definitely not for people with claustrophobia. Kids loved it!
  • Truly liked it, one part of the tunnel was Kind of scary but completely safe
  • Fantastic experience - tour II medieval silver mine is a must in Kutna Hora.
