Tarnobrzeg, a city of about 30,000 inhabitants but in constant demographic decline and with few opportunities for the future, was the heart of the sulphur industry in the 20th century. Today, a huge artificial lake takes the place of the old sulphur mines, showing a clear example of what can be done to turn these places into entertainment centers.
