Today we are going to visit an abandoned mine that is, according to the legend, -880 meters deep. The mine has not been functioning for a couple of years and is conserved meaning that all the exits and entrances are blocked. Who knows maybe there is not enough air inside…
This is an entrance filled with concrete. So, if you want to get in, you will need a flame cutter.
After the access was obtained it became clear that the hole is at least 200 meters deep.
The descent can be long and boring. At great depth humidity is very high. To avoid a shower of ground waters one needs a costume of chemical protection.
The abandoned system is somehow connected to the acting one preventing the area from flooding.
The mine is in a very bad condition. The floor can fall down any time.
Dates on found packs showed that people had not visited the place for years.
Walking through the tunnels.
All the tunnels seemed alike.
The sign on the wall says ‘Emergency Air Supply’. In case of fire people hid inside and closed all the doors.
Dangerous area. Explosion works are carried out.
Another ventilation tunnel led even deeper but those areas were all flooded.
Over 600 meters of the system were underwater.
