Although the last ton of coal from any active coal mine in Zagłębie was extracted over a year ago, the history of the past two hundred years in this area is mainly the history of mining.
On Saturday, June 18, we went on a guided tour to discover some of its traces, which are numerous here: starting from proper names, through post-mining facilities, topography of a forest, ending with residential and public utility buildings. Please see the photo coverage of a trip in the shadow of coal on the route Ostrowy Górnicze – Kazimierz Górniczy – Zagórze, during which we also met a former Home Army soldier and a scout leader.
