About
It's probably the last and only sign of coal mining (the coal mine itself was turned into economical zone), that was a major industry in area for 400 years (memorial plaque on the monument mentiones 600 years...), that finally came to its sad end by the end of 20th century.

Symbol of coal mining era
Aug 2017 • Family
Słupiec, when it was still a town of its own merits, was always associated with coal mining. Those days have gone, with the Polish government decision of closing the mine made in early nineties of the 20th century. People of Słupiec are still involved in mining minerals, but nowadays its open quarries for road building aggregate. Large coal mine was turned into economic zone, with new businesses popping out every now and again, and changing the industrial landscape. But coal mining traditions are still live in Słupiec, even if on day to day basis there's only one place showing that - the monument to the miners, standing now on Wojska Polskiego street.
