Take a walk through a slate mine
The Flaschar Mine is a historic mining site dating back to the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, when the slate industry was booming in the Low Beskids region. At the end of the 19th century, there were 52 active slate mining and processing plants in the Silesian industrial region. In the Nový Svět area near Ostrava, which also includes the Flaschar Mine, there are seven abandoned slate mines.
Flaschar's mine is open to the public from May 1st to October 30th, Wednesday to Sunday, from 9:00 to 17:00.
The mine is closed from November 1st to April 30th for nature protection reasons.
