The last cart with coal was pulled out to the surface in the thirties of 1992 and it´s shafts were filled up between 1995 and 1996. After the mine stopped to function this hundreds of hectares of mine area was more or less closed for public. But later recovery of the most valuable buildings started and step by step minor tenants have begun to come in and held cultural events here of which the most important is Colours of Ostrava. In the recent years The Lower Area of Vítkovice with partners aims systematically to get it back on the map of Ostrava. Cultural quarter Provoz Hlubina will fully function from 2015.
