If you’re going to take a trip to these far reaches, which are laced with rare metals, do not omit a visit to the Ztracených Štol Valley. The Olešnice Stream, for millions of years, has deposited gold into the silt and after eras upon eras it became sedimentary rock. Today in the valley a replica of a medieval mining town is being built. Already in operating order are two screws for bringing up gold ore and a gold ore mill, constructed according to plans of the era. You can even try panning for gold!
The instructional nature trail will also take you to a place of optical illusions, where “water flows uphill”. The European and Czech and Slovak Republic championships in gold panning have taken place in Zlaté Hory, as well as the annual Gold Pan contest awarded by the town mayor.
