The discovery of black coal, which had been hiding in underground of the north of Těšínsko for millions of years, meant a radical and irreversible change for the entire region. By the end of 18th century, the agriculture character of the area came to an end and from the beginning of the 19th century, the northern part of Těšínsko went through several immigration waves, with majority of immigrants coming from Halič. Next to the arising mining operations also typical mining colonies were built and the character of the whole landscape had started to change. In the Museum of Těšínsko, you can learn everything about the mining tradition, mining craft, its origin and development and also improving the mining technique. Founding of the Třinecké ironworks in 1839 meant a radical change for the south of Těšínsko. The agriculture character of the landscape was transformed into industrial economically dynamic region, that profitted from numerous black coal deposits, sufficiency of water energy and also seemingly inexhaustible source of wood in Beskydy mountains. Construction of Košice-Bohumín Railway in 1871, which connected Třinec with new black coal deposits in Slovak Republic, allowed a transport of the black coal from Ostrava-Karviná mines and opened the door for sales at distant markets. Tradition of mining and metallurgical craft was successfully born as well as mining folklore, impossible to overlook. Enjoy the characteristic atmosphere of Těšín Silesia and its specific mining traditions.
