We joined a Polish tour of the mine complex using an English audio guide for explanations. It was a fascinating insight into coal mining and the life of miners. If you want to know the story of Johnny and the mine do the tour!!

Great place. Definitely worth a visit after they have renovated the place. It’s very easy to find and the bus stop is right outside the place. Very friendly staff and many different languages available
