    Description

    A blast furnace plant called “Joseph’s Steel Mill”, whose ruins one can admire up to the present, was built in the years 1818–1822 owing to the efforts of Stanisław Staszic.

    It was set up on the site of the first blast furnace of Bergamo type from 1598, which was rebuilt in the years 1641–44. The modernized steel mill was able to produce about 800 tons of steel a year. Unfortunately, the plant was never reconstructed after the fire in 1866. Today, the remains of the steel mill resemble a classicist palace establishment dominated by the headframe and the round blast furnace.
