Bobrek Coal Mine

Silesia

It was named the same as the present district of Bytom and has been operating since 1922. At the beginning of the 1920s, it reached the highest mining level in Upper Silesia. From August 1945, a labour camp consisting of six barracks operated there. Since 2015, it has been merged with Piekary Coal Mine under the name Bobrek-Piekary Coal Mine.

The European Union, associated with the policy of open borders, is currently surrounded by over 2,000 kilometers of border fences.
