On the underground
tourist route

You will learn about the tools and history of mining

Having a guided tour, you will see a 500-meter section of the Gertruda Adit which is connected with the legend of the lost Gertruda. On the route in this part you can see:

  • a rich exhibition of maps and mine plans from the 18th to the 20th century (including the mysterious map of the Black Adit)
  • showcases/cabinets with old mining and metallurgical tools, minerals, an exhibition of mining lamps
  • a muffle furnace, a laboratory furnace in which gold is smelted
  • an eighteenth-century ore trolley

You will see the Walk of Death

On the top floor there is a pavement/sidewalk with a very miserable history. It was exactly here where miners of stealing gold were sentenced to death. The convicts stood up against the wall, where they were put in particular drilled holes and poured up to the elbows by the mortar, and then they died in torment alone.

Orange Railway Ride

One of the most interesting tourist attractions in the Gold Mine is the 300-meter underground route, which can only be done by the orange tram. A queue that will allow you to take a breath and see the Mine from a different perspective.

Moreover, in the Mine
you will see

The only Underground Waterfall in Poland

In the Black Adit there is the only underground waterfall in Poland. Deep under the ground, in a small chamber, from a height of ten meters, the water crashes right in front of the visitors, often splashing the faces of delighted tourists.

Museum of Warnings, Notes and Calls

A collection of plates related mainly to Health and Safety Regulations (OSH), capturing various slogans, instructions and warnings. Often these are downright funny slogans, such as: "Don't throw a hammer while on the scaffold" or more ambitious "What did you do today to reduce your own costs?"

Underground boat trip*

Some of the sidewalks of the Gertruda Adit can be seen in an unconventional way, i.e. sailing in a 15-person boat gracefully named Titanic. The Underground Rafting is about 200 meters long. It is an additional attraction not included in the basic tour.

What does the mine tour look like?

On-site you will also see an underground slide and a hologram of Gerturda’s ghost!
