    A highly recommended view mine. Medieval mining history and its evolution since the middle ages. Too bad the only guides to speak Czech and English

    The tickets were flexible and when indicated, that we have set up a new English group. "The Way of Silver" tour during which we participated in the mine's operation requires us to beavattak and then cloak and helmet alongside-by látványosságggá átvonoltunk the city tourist-lemerészkedtünk the old bányajáratokba. Flights in some areas is quite small, who cannot stand the bezártságot its not recommended for hiking.

    When visiting the place Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic you get out to visit the silver museum and the silver mine. Before we begin the descent we all get a white overcoat with hood and head lamp. Even though I hate the step to have small spaces I have ventured to go along the caves in and me deep underground to venture! The female guide did her best in (in our case English) to best to explain everything a. h. v put in scene artwork and performances! The mine shaft is sometimes very narrow and long stretches you can not walk upright! If you have claustrophobia I would advise against! Despite the warnings of organization m. b. t health and or short breath problems I noticed the physical effort with it yet, it is worth it and have a good picture of the deplorable working conditions
