  • Such a unique place! Unfortunately, we have been touring with unfriendly staff. Never again! As a professional teacher who is in charge of teens, we have been treated with no respect. We are all human beings, and so are teens, too. We don't deserve unpleasant treatment. Very disappointed after all. Anyway, we have plenty of beautiful places in Czechia, so let's discover them. Hopefully, we will meet the friendly and welcoming staff.
  • Did the tour into the mine, which was awesome. It is pretty cramped down there though (which make sense, it is a medieval mine after all!). Guide was excellent at explaining everything. Would certainly recommend.
