Under the surface of the earth, a different world comes to light – an UNDERGROUND world, marked by centuries of human activity. Would you like to know more?
Kaolin Mine in Nevřeň
You can take a tour of the former kaolin mine, featured in a famous fairy-tale film, in Nevřeň from April to October. The mine has about 1.3 km of underground corridors, 700 m of which you can see on the tour. Today, we can discover the work of our ancestors in the mine. Corridors that are up to 12 m tall and 8 m wide survive today. And the walls show visible signs of being dug by hand, and places of the ceiling are stained black, most likely burn marks from the carbide lamps used in those days to light the miners’ work.
- Opening hours: April – October, only on specified dates (tours outside of these months are only available for groups of 15+)
- Admission to the mine costs 170 CZK for adults, 100 CZK for children
- No admission for children younger than 4; children younger than 15 must be chaperoned by a legal guardian
- Pets not allowed
- You’ll find the tour dates and more information on the Centrum Caolinum website
