  • Entry is only during the season, every hour. Not suitable for tiny children. You can check it out on the Internet that is free to enter, and if there is not booked for the group. A very interesting monument. You get the lamp and shroud.

  • Visit per hour right on time. Arrive 5 minutes later means next time visit slipping. Guide to Slovak, minimum 5 persone...ma there seems to be always people, even in October. A movie interesting initial is subtitled in English. Then the rest of the guide is all in Slovak. Lasts 90 minutes ... kids too small might get bored. Fitted with a helmet and torch cloak down in the mines for a journey of about an hour. Sometimes claustrophobic, but very addictive. Pity the many lost information because only in Slovak!
