“Polska” Mine Hoist Towers

The owner of the mine was Guido Henckel von Donnersmarck. Operation of a mine began in 1872. Until 1922 the mine was called "Deutschland" (in honour of German unification). From 1922 to 1937 it was called "Niemcy" (Germany). On May 3rd, 1937 it was named "Polska" (Poland). Between 1884 and 1887 two shaft buildings were built with shaft towers I and II, which were to operate the newly opened levels 180 m and 225 m. These shafts were equipped with modern lifting machines. They are the only remains of this mine.
