The Medieval Mining Settlement is a very precise replica of a medieval settlement, including machines and devices reconstructed in a 1:1 scale. They are all in working order, as every visitor can find out. Some of them are quite impressive (e.g. the vertical treadmill is 15 metres large and the horizontal one weighs 3 tons). All the machines and devices were built on the basis of medieval illustrations by Georgius Agricola.
Nowhere else in Europe will you find another replica of a medieval mining village that would be so precise and full of machines and devices.
Visiting the Park is very much like a travel in time back to the Middle Ages. In addition, visitors to the Mining Settlement can walk through a mysterious and scary underground tunnel leading to the cottage of the local executioner. This attraction relates to the medieval office and profession of executioner in Złoty Stok - he played an important role in punishing miners who stole gold or other criminals.
Anyone who visits our medieval village will have the opportunity to have a ride in a replica of the tank invented by Leonardo da Vinci.
Professional blacksmiths or potters, i.e. handicrafts that used to be popular in such settlements, are a frequent additional attraction.
