The Kaznějov Kaolin Quarry

Mining has been going on here since 1904 and at least fifteen levels are currently being mined. The quarry is almost 1.8 km long, 800 metres wide at its widest point, and the annual production is 320,000 tonnes of kaolin. The scenery of the quarry is often used for filming by filmmakers. You would identify it, for example, as the set in which the battle against the Turks took place in the fairy tale movie Princezna ze mlejna (The Watermill Princess) 2.
