Want to know about Coal in the Czech Republic?

I had no idea that coal was such an industry in Ostrava, and is still used to heat so many homes in the Czech Republic. I never really understood coal mining, and its dangers... read more

This is one of 2 mines I visited while in Ostrava. This mine tour is in a very large park like setting. The park is not part of the tour so explore it separately if you want to. The tour is in Czech but I rented (100) an English audio to play during the tour. I had some trouble with... More

This is extraordinary museum where you can either see exhibits or touch them and feel yourself like a miner decades ago. After using a shaft-lift you will walk through real drills with real machines accompanied by dummies dressed like miners. I recommend the visit warmly.

I never really understood coal mining, and its dangers, until I visited this museum and tour of the actual mine. The guided museum tour and the mine tour are both one hour each, so plan... More

The trip to the underworld of the abandoned mine is fascinating. The guides are former miners themselves, so they have understanding of the topic and passion for it. Not recommended for claustrophobic people, you literally feel the weight of the earth over your head.

(non-Czech) language is an issue, as reported by others; we have been only two visitors and got a kind and shy former miner as a guide, who walked through the tunnels much faster than the audio guide succeeded to inform us about the points of interest... but we enjoyed; the undergorund minining exposition is not very big, but quite well...

My friend and I visited the site on a Monday. There was very little information and we couldn't figure out what the attraction was all about... maybe because it was the off-season - who knows. For so much being written about it, it was very disappointing!

If you are not from mining area, you will find this attraction very strange but it is a great experience that nobody should miss when visiting Ostrava. Unfortunately, I do not know if they are ok to do a tour in English but whenever I took my English speaking friends, I translated for them - so I would recommend you... More
