Graphite mine Český Krumlov

Go underground to find out how graphite was mined in Krumlov.

Are you looking for a distraction on a hot summer day in Český Krumlov? Cool down in the graphite mine, where excursions are organized every day of the season. In addition, it is just a short walk from the center, a 15-minute walk from the square.

Before going down to the mine, you will receive a special mining garment and a lamp from the guide. Then you take the mine train to a small adventure trip that takes you underground. You will learn something about the miners' life, the ways of mining, and processing of graphite. You will see massive mining machines and experience the hard work that the mining profession requires.
