The visit of the mine

Mine tour by train

 

Put on your mining equipment and take a ride on a genuine mining train right to the heart of the mine, the Moring district. Driving through the 3.5 km long Glančnik tunnel lasts about 15 minutes and can truly be described as a unique experience. You will step out at the station in the heart of the mountain, 600 m below the surface of Veliki vrh. Accompanied by an experienced guide, you will head for the tourist trail to find out more about the history of mining. Numerous exhibited objects reveal the everyday work and lives of miners. Upon request, we can even serve a real miner’s lunch or breakfast. At the end of the tour, you will hop back on the train and return from the mine full of impressions. The entire tour lasts from 1 hour 45 minutes to 2 hours.

In the mine, different types of mining equipment and tools are presented that were used by miners in different historical periods, from the early beginnings over 350 years ago until the last days of mining in the past century.
