Nowadays most of the tourists attraction points are modified or rebuilt, but this one with a concept of “ last working day was yesterday” is excellent that shows workers real situation. Very clear explanation by tour guide in english. Flexible arrangement. Recommended.

We were guided by former mineworker with very deep knowledge about all processes and details. On the top he was very entertaining and great with the group. We spent three hour tour and I enjoyed every second of it.

Even though the mine is buried and won't be accessible any more, the tour provides a lovely time to spend amidst the industrial magnificence of black 'n golden age of Ostrava's mining history. I loved the running belt-propelled-motor-thing!
