Visited out of curiosity on a wet day. Was much better than we expected and we enjoyed it. Much of the fun is in the dressing up and riding on a small train down in to the mine. It is rather cool in the mine...More

As our planned rafting trip wasn't available, we wound up doing an unplanned visit to a graphite mine right outside Cesky Krumlov. Definitely an interesting experience. After putting on miner's boots, overalls, helmuts, and light packs, we rode on this tiny train about a mile...More
