Short description:
This underground adventure starts at the mining museum in Glančnik in Mežica and leads you to in 1994 abandoned lead mine in wonderful valley of Mežica. You board a genuine mining train which rides from the museum through the 3.5 km long Gačnik tunnel and up to Unionski vpadnik slope mine. From here you descend for 95 m and go down the stairs that lead to water. At this point you all receive the necessary protective equipment. Then you enter a flooded shaft where special three person kayaks are already waiting for you. Your guide leads you along a small underground river until you reach the magical underground lakes almost 700 m below the surface. You can now enjoy the peaceful and pristine water and explore the underground labyrinth, submerged tunnels and excavation sites. You will end your journey by following a narrow passage, paddling through some minor rapids and arriving back at the starting point.
After the kayak ride you will walk past the abandoned underground working sites to the mining train station. Allow your guide to take you back to a time when the mine was not immersed in silence, but rather full of miners working away with different tools and machines.
After a proper miner’s lunch the train will take you to the mining museum where you can admire a number of interesting collections. These display the daily lives and work of miners in the heart of Mount Peca as well as precious ores and minerals the wonderful creations of Mother Nature.
