Hg Smeltery reviews
A very interesting exhibition about mercury ore smelting and mining in Idrija. There are a lot of superlatives about the mercury mine in Idrija and the environmental impact 500 years of mining left behind. The exhibition that shows what mercury used to be used for is also amazing. The guides are wonderful and they know how to present the story of their town. Very recommended!
Exelent guide and good exhibits. Nowadays it is hard to understand how miners were willing to go in live silver mine knowing it is poisonous.
