The Museum of Coal Mine „Guido” in Zabrze 



It is the only coal mine in Poland where you may go 170 or even 320 meters underground. There, during the 1,5 hour walk, you may admire the effects of miner’s work. But we were so lucky because we used lift and we needed only 3-4 minutes, oh my god I still can feel that moments so dark narrow lift which is going down dawn dawn and I was thinking no I don’t wanna die here no pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ... but don’t worry don’t scared u will servive of course how our guide  told us everything was under control... :) after that beautiful lift You can walk down and climb along original mine’s corridors, admire the exhibition illustrating the history of mining. you can watch the work of enormously big mine machines. The guides are former miners and you are going to enjoy their stories even if u are interested such kind of stories cause that guide was so interested with his joy and now I have one gifts from him ... this is a coal from that walls  and how he told me it’s a black diamond :) :) :)

 sooo now u can imagine my reader how great he was ...

so let's continue...

The mine was established in 1855 by the Count Guido Henckel von Donnersmarck. However, the layers of coal were exceptionally poor in that area, and that is why the main lost on importance in the early 30-ties. In 1967 an experimental coal mine was opened there, and it worked till 1982. Since then, works aiming at opening the mine for tourists started. They were successful and in 2007, first tourist could step on the hoist and take a narrated ride to the bottom of a mine shaft. In 2009, the deepest level of the mine was opened for visitors. It allows not only walking in extraordinary surrounding, there is also a Vauxhall where concerts and theatre plays are being organized.

So how u understand it was so interesting place, oh I forget In Mine were also so handsome guys  ( Plastic of course:))  and our great guide also told us- ''LADIES   every guys is single''  can u imagine still single:) ...so one more reason for ladies  why u have to see that place but don’t worry guys u can don’t mantion thay and jusy enjoy your time there and be sure everybodys will like that place.

P.S. I would like to tell thanks for Christian (from German) who was holding my hand during the travel by that lovely lift :):):) thank u for support in difficult minutes for me :)
