Drill Mine of the “Sztygarka” Town Museum

The mine was established in 1927 as a training facility of the Stanisław Staszic State School of Mining and Metallurgy. In historic excavations with the total length of 800 meters, mining machines and equipment were presented which were used in the mining industry in the second half of the 20th century.

Route chronicle

The mine is composed of excavations located at three levels connected with inclined drifts. At the lowest level, a wall of coal is made available in the bed numbered as 401. Due to the mining conditions prevailing in the Drill Mine (temperature of 11-12 degrees C, air humidity 80-90%) it is recommended to use comfortable (full) footwear and warmer clothes. Additionally, visitors will be given protective jackets, helmets and personal lighting.
The Drill Mine is located in the south-eastern part of the mining area of the former hard coal mine “Paryż” which owes its name to the mining shaft opened in 1884. The Drill Mine was established 80 years ago for training purposes, to teach students of mining schools about the place of their future work.

The Church of Saint Barbara in Dąbrowa Górnicza has served Catholics since just after the war. However, the building itself has a long history. It was built for Lutherans in the second half of the nineteenth century. After the Second World War, the church served the students of the “Sztygarka’ School of Mining. The building has no specific style, but some elements of its architecture refer to both the neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic.
