In Miners’ Open Air Museum of Mayrau , you would learn about history of black coal mining in the Kladno region. You will ride on miner tracks to an underground mine. This mine used one of the most important in the region of Kladno, yet also it was one of the most difficult. It applies not only to difficult and dangerous work for low salary. It also applies to mine surveying, rescue, way of work, geology etc.
The name ing. Jan Karlík would not sound strange to you, as well as JUDr. Kajetán Mayer the then head of administration committee of Prazska Zelezarska Company. It is the latter’s name used to name the mine itself.

Kladno. When people hear the name of this city, most of them think of a forty year old man with earthy humor, who conquered the world with his art with a hockey stick. We visited Kladno during the time of the interruption of NHL season, in time when Jaromír Jágr plays in Kladno. It is evident that the city lived hockey.
If you ask, where you can find the oldest building in the Czech Republic we will answer you – in Budeč. This sight that you can find in town of Zákolany – Kováry just few kilometers from Kladno, is inseparably and firmly connected with the history of Czech people.
