Very interesting but tour could be a bit shorter. Make sure you have warm clothes, even during summer.

There are different themes in the Tytyri Mine. The year I visited the Tytyri Mine, there was light and music show, this year s theme has been dining in "Pop down" restaurant. This was popular. Wear warm clothes, it is chilly down there.

I took two children - 7 and 8 - and the visit was primarily for their enjoyment. The overall impression it leaves is good - but the 2 hours was overly drawn out. A lot may be dependent on the guide.
