The retorts, i.e. steel furnaces for burning charcoal, standing here encourage tourists to look at them closely and to feel like real tar smokers

Open-air Museum of Charcoal Firing

how to get there

Before the furnaces appeared in the Bieszczady forests, charcoal piles (earth mounds) were used for firing.  We will also see an example of such a mound here. Next, there is a barrack of charcoal burners. Looking through the window, one gets a modest picture of the conditions in which the workers lived.


Thanks to its location on the route to Muczne, visiting the open-air museum gives you the opportunity to rest while traveling. There are benches and tables, as well as educational plaques about charcoal firing. Entry to the Museum is free of charge.
