The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Idrija contains an incredible history of mercury mining, with the second largest mercury mine in the world. The mercury deposits were first found in 1490 but the mine has long since been decommissioned. There is an interesting and interactive museum where you can venture underground to see the conditions these Slovenian miners worked in. The museum contains mercury stores, miners’ living quarters and even a miners’ theatre. The main museum is on Anthony's Road but there is also an Hg smelting plant that can be included as an add on tour.
