Reviews and Comments of Our Tourists

Dwight from Silesia, PolandKiedy jedziesz odwiedzić nowy kraj, nowe miasto, z pewnością natrafisz na zabytkową architekturę miasta, pięknie przyozdobione parki, muzea o szerokiej tematyce. Krzywy Róg oferują coś zupełnie innego czego nie znajdziesz we wielu miastach. Rodina Mine pokazała mi jak wygląda praca ponad 1300 m pod ziemią. Nad bezpieczeństwem naszej 10-osobowej grupy dbało czterech wykwalifikowanych fachowców. W między czasie jechaliśmy pociągiem, spacerowaliśmy wyrobiskami górniczymi i widzieliśmy jak pracują nowoczesne maszyny górnicze. W każdej chwili mogliśmy zadać różne pytania związane z pracą górnika, a także o tajemniczego ... Shubina.

Warte zobaczenia.

When you go to visit a new country, a new city, you will come across the historic architecture of the city, beautifully decorated parks, museums with broad themes. Kryvyi Rih offer something totally different you will not find in many cities. Rodina Mine showed me how the work of more than 1300 meters underground. The safety of our 10-person group cared of four skilled workers. In the meantime, we traveled by train, walked through mining excavations and seen how they work with new mining machinery. Over four hours walking have passed quickly. At any moment we could ask various questions related to the work of a miner, as well as the mysterious ... Shubin. Worth seeing.
