The best idea for an excursion is to experience one of the largest mercury mines in the world and the interactive educational exhibition at the Hg Smelting Plant. Here, with the help of experiments, animations, video films and devices, visitors will discover and learn about this unique liquid metal that contributed to the flourishing of human civilisation. The restoration and revitalisation of the Smelting Plant area – one of the most important world heritage sites – is an innovative example of the conservation of industrial heritage that has been integrally upgraded into a tourist product featuring an interactive educational exhibition.
»Heritage of Mercury. Almadén and Idrija« was inscribed on UNESCO's List of World Heritage in 2012.
