This place is one of the a-must-see in Ostrava if you are interested in industrial architecture and tourism. Other places to visit are Michal coal mine and Dolní oblast Vítkovice. History of coal-mining will be shown you by the experts, ex-workers of ostrava's coal mines. There's also big and interesting exhibition of mine rescue service. Outside you could see wide... More

Quite impressive place to see, even you aren't fan of mining. The exposition of real conditions and mining area is just a place you'll remember.

Very interesting open air museum focused on black coal mining. The Landek Hill itself is connected with cavemans and early settlement. Good for whole family, if the weather is good. The surrounding area is good for cycling.

The Landek Park is a large sprawling complex that has a museum that goes into the lives of rescue workers and what it was like to be a miner. You do actually get to go into a part of defunct mine and see real equipment that was used. These tours give you a greater feel and respect for what miners... More

I am not a technician, this trip was a git for my husband which I have thought I would have to suffer. To my surprise it was prepared very well, it is also nice for children as they are allowed to try some exhibits. The best think is that the guides are former miners and they are very good. They...

we could go down the mine. Our guide was ex-employe (rentier) that means that the explanation was easy to understand and truly from the life.

Really great presentation of the region's rich coal mining history. The first part of the two-hour tour involves looking at a great collection of old mine safety equipment. The second part takes you down into an old mine, where they demonstrate actual mining equipment used. Our guide for the mine part was fantastic! Didn't speak a word of English (fair... More

I have visited various mining ghost towns in the US but the Landek Park Mining Museum was an entirely different experience. For one, this was the very first time that I actually visited a mine underground and got to see how people here used to earn a living. Visitors first visit a mining museum with lots of equipment, where it... More
