Before departure from Klodzko we took a trip under the town where we were staying. Here, mediaeval cellars originally built for storage had been used in later years as shelters for the residents in times of conflict. In essence their history is the same as the Boves beneath Arras in northern France which has been a tourist attraction for many years. When buildings above the tunnels started collapsing in the 1960s, an extensive programme of restoration started which, as part of its legacy, has left a tourist route through many of them. Displays document some of the historical uses with an over-emphasis (aimed at younger visitors) on instruments of torture.
