It's a city specially build for local miner over hundred years ago. Miners families still live there cultivating their own habits. Good to visit during fest.

Went here by bus after being told about it by a very enthusiastic young man. Had a quiet walk around. Not sure if we saw everything because of time limitation, but interesting to learn how this was specially built for the miners and their families.
