Polska Coal Mine


In the beginning, it was owned by Guido Henckel von Donnersmarck, a Silesian coal magnate. It was established in 1873 and was called Deutschland Coal Mine (until 1922) and Niemcy Coal Mine (until 1937). It was closed in 1996. Today, you can visit the renovated shaft tower there.

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