Predoi village

The main place of the municipality attracts lots of visitors with the mining museum and the Climatic Gallery.

The history of mining is strictly intertwined with the mine of Predoi. This is where up to the year 1893 copper was extracted. When the mine quit its operation, people were forced to find another source of income and decided to go to Vienna in order to learn the arts of lace-making. Back to Predoi, they taught this handicraft in special schools and passed it on from generation to generation. Many farm-women still practise this handicraft today.

Also the Provincial Mining Museum has its seat in Predoi, a little yellow mining train takes you inside the earth, where the hard lives of miners is illustrated.

Also deep inside the earth, there is the Climatic Gallery of Predoi, which is a mine that is out of service. A repeated stay in the Climatic Gallery is supposed to alleviate respiratory diseases. What you also should not miss is a visit to the museum “Zum Falkenstein“, also located in this place.
