Underground attraction
Jul 2018 • Friends
Absolutely great tourist attraction. We came on bikes in a group from Świeradów Zdrój. The mining of tin & cobalt started here in 16th century and now, thank to local and mostly EU founding this place literally resurfaced and can be now visited. Groups of 15 are let in for a short historical introduction and then guided through narrow corridors.
Our guide Patrycja turned out to be very communicative, informative and engaging.
Keep in mind that children under 10 years of age are not allowed.
The admission is free of charge at the moment (July 18) until sometime this year.

Relatively new atraction near Swieradow
May 2015 • Couples
The Geo Park is a relatively new tour of old/historical mine of Sw. Jan in village Krobica, north of Swieradow. Just turn east from Road no. 361 toward Krobica and follow the signs for Geo Park.
The underground tour is amazing!!!!! After a brief introduction you'll enter into the tunnels of old mine. The hard-heads are provided, and guide will stop and explain all points of interest. First it is a dipper section of St. Leopold shaft/adit from XVII century. The half way you'll enter the shaft of St Jan from XVI century, go up eleven meters on spiral stairs, to return back by the upper tunnels. Some segments of the tunnel are very narrow and tilted out of vertical position.
However, the total length of tour is short, and we always felt safe.
There was no fee for the tour since some of the grants from construction of the underground tour were left and they are using them for guides and maintenance.
