The historical Jeroným Mine
The historical Jeroným Mine is situated in the Sokolov district.
The historical Jeroným Mine is situated in the Sokolov district. The Jeroným Mine, in which largely tin ore was extracted, is a significant monument documenting the level of development of mining in the 15th and 16th century. The central part of the deposit houses beautiful chambers, rest areas and ledges from the 16th century. The mine corridors still bear distinct traces of ancient mining practices using mallets and pickers or firing.
The Jeroným Mine has been declared a National cultural monument in 1998 and salvage operations are currently underway.
At present, the mine is accessible to the public from May to mid-October.
