About this spot
The settlement was probably founded in the first half of the 17th century, but tin ore was mined here earlier.
During the Second World War, a plant for the extraction and treatment of tin ores was built by the company Zinnbergbau Sudetenland between the municipalities of Rolava and Jeleni.
The mining and treatment of tin ore took place until May 1945.
After the war the tin mine was closed, the machines were dismantled and taken to other mines. The whole area was abandoned and began to dilapidate.
