Reviews

Ksiaz Castle is huge but doesn't have much of original interior design. I loved the gardens and hilly green area. Former Mine complex is an interesting and immersive place. It was a fascinating insight into coal mining and the life of miners. Porcelain Museum also adds interesting dimension to Walbrzych that is charming town. Do the tour!!! ITS Poland help was invaluable as our tour guide Magda was also our on board translator, wherever it was necessary. We would never get so much info without her.
Fin
The mine is one of those places, when you get more than you expect. It is brand new and sparkling (in most parts) cultural centre, where you can see millions spent over the years on polishing and cleaning every little surface. Our guide was one of only few miners, who did work in this mine. And that guy was absolutely great, he showed us everything and even more, and there were moment we thought we will never get out of there, as there was so much to see. Absolutely a must, when in Walbrzych. Ksiaz Castle is huge and with interesting history also all these WWII mysteries, definitely worth visiting.
