What a fantastic experience this was. I had heard so much of Ostrava's huge mining heritage so it was very much on my to-do list to come to Landek. It did not disappoint at all... read more

We took a tour. We also bought an audio guide. There were times where the audio guide went 55 seconds and the Czech language guide, who seemed to be a former miner, talked for perhaps 10 minutes. We really would have liked to have heard what he was saying. I understand they can't have English guides for everyone - but... More

It is an interesting place to visit as such. The area is not only a mine, but also several other things to be done. Sad, that information is scarce, there is very little in any language apart Czech. I made a visit to the mine, but it was a huge disappointment. The guide was only talking to first 5 people... More

The most interesting part of the tour is listening to the stories of tour leaders, (who are former miners) which are spoken in Czech - thus I think that this place is not very interesting for those who cannot understand Czech language. Although excursion to the former mining tunnels are also worth it.

The mining museum offers an interesting insight in the mining industry that once dominated Ostrava. Guided tour to the mine, including live demo of working mining equipment. Lots of interesting artifacts. The museum itself focuses a lot on security, displaying an old ambulance and various resque equipment. Recommended sight in Ostrava.

We were a group of 12 people and they offered a guide that speaks good English. Overall the experience is really cool, as you get to see the mine itself closely. Do visit the restaurant on site of Landek, they have really good meal too.
