Kongsberg Silver Mines is a journey on the old miner’s train used to transport silver ore and miners in and out of the silver mines of Kongsberg (Norway). The deafening sound and immense vibrations of the old trucks transport us finally into the depths of the mines. Here a guide drifts in and out with snippets of description and history.
