So, you're here, and we have a hunch that you're already clued in on all the awesomeness of our conference. But hey, let's take a moment to introduce you to the magical little town of Labin. Picture this: Labin is like a small but mighty warrior with a vibrant soul and a history that'll blow your mind.

Now, let's talk about our little obsession with mining. You might have noticed it already. But hold on, we promise there's an interesting story behind it. Trust us, it's an important part of this city's DNA.

One of the most captivating attractions in the city is the replica of a mine, offering a glimpse into the lives of Labin's hardworking miners. Equipped with a helmet, you can venture into the recreated underground tunnels and gain a profound appreciation for the strenuous labor that sustained the city and its people. Mining holds a significant place in Labin's history, and the museum's dedicated mining section pays homage to this integral part of its heritage.

A proud symbol of Labin's industrial past is the towering iron structure known as Šoht, which stands tall as a reminder of the city's heritage. Since 1940, this iron giant served as the descent point for the city's miners, transporting them into the depths of the underground. Today, the protected industrial cultural heritage site of "Pjacal" offers visitors a glimpse into Labin's industrial legacy. Find a seat on one of the nearby benches, take in the surroundings, and let the atmosphere transport you to a bygone era.

Connected to Šoht is Lamparna, the place where miners changed their clothes, picked up their lamps, exchanged wishes of good fortune /SRETNO/, and entered the mining tunnels. Lamparna is an integral part of the industrial heritage complex, and it provides a deeper understanding of the mining experience, as it allows visitors to witness firsthand the rituals and preparations undertaken by the miners before descending into the depths of the earth.
