This is an unusual place – one of the world’s best preserved and biggest monuments of ancient mining. Here, over 5,000 years ago, humans started the excavation of flint, which was called the gold and steel of the Neolithic Age. When wandering down the 500 m long underground tourist route, you will see the mines that, despite the lapse of time, have survived in an almost unchanged condition till today. The history of the mines and flint is told by exhibitions that you will see in the building of the Museum. You will learn much about everyday life in the Neolithic Age and the early Bronze Age during a visit to a primeval village, where you will find also a reconstruction of a megalithic tombstone and a homestead from the late Stone Age and the early Bronze Age, near which archaeological workshops and shows are held. Because of its value, Krzemionki is recognised as a Monument to History and has been inscribed on the UNESCO tentative list of World Heritage sites. Thanks to the unusual character of the place and the proximity of nature, your visit to Krzemionki will be an unforgettable experience. The
site is available to visitors at any time of the year.
