Experience the 500-year-old tradition of the mining story!

During Mercury Days, Idrija tips its hat to the memory of the generations of miners whose diligent work helped create the successful story of Idrija Mercury Mine. Every autumn, lectures, projections, experiments, public tours and intergenerational discussions bring the exciting mercury story, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, closer to the home and international public.
