Polish Gold Mine Entrance

The entrance to the gold mine guarded by a small statue of a miner. All the statues of miners looked like hunched orcs and were scattered around the park. Even some of the tour guides were dressed as miners making it quite a spooky experience.

Of course it’s important to take a look at the map before a hike unless you want to spend the night out in the woods.

Jesenik is known for having some of the best water in Poland and folks come from all around for water therapy. The ice cold water is supposed to provide sorts of benefits if you soak your body after or during exercise. All around the public park are spots to stop your jog and dunk your legs in spring water.

Took a picture of the signs at this bus station. Trail markers and signs like these were the inspiration for the ThriftyTrails logo.
