About the Cellars
Discover the town hidden under the ground.
Situated on a trade route and famous for its grand fairs, Jarosław needed storage spaces for storing goods. Under the burgher houses corridors were tunneled, creating a network of underground labyrinths that were independent of each other. Today these cellars are the cultural heritage of Jarosław. One of the biggest tourist attractions is the Underground Tourist Passage, created as a part of the EU project “Yaroslav – Uzhgorod: common initiative for improving the touristic attractiveness of historical partner cities”. The route leads under three splendid merchant burgher houses: the Orsettis’, the Attavantis’ and the Gruszewiczów’s. This innovative attraction combines conventional exhibition with the huge number of multimedia devices and vivid interior arrangement, thanks to which the tour is not only based on a dry narrative but is a great entertainment for children and grown-ups.
