Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Northwest Romania / Cluj County / Turda / Salina Turda
Board a panoramic wheel and observe the 1,000-year-old stalagmites, or row across a small underground lake at Salina Turda. Romans began unearthing this huge underground mine in the 2nd century. It was closed in 1932 and reopened for tourists in 1992. Old mining machines take visitors through its massive halls, and the textured salt caves also house spa equipment for halotherapy. The pressure and dampness of the caves help in the treatment of asthma and allergies. The mine also features a family entertainment area with ping pong tables and bowling lanes, an echo chamber, a crystal hall, and a 50 m (164 ft) wide and 80 m (262 ft) long hall.

Amazing attraction. It's figuratively and literally down to earth. No screaming propaganda or flashy signs, but a welcoming entrance to the deep. The prices are very good and you'll get an unique experience. Not just for the adults, but children of all ages will have fun here as well. Didn't see that coming.
Beautiful place and a nice tourist attraction. My advice is that they put another elevator as we were wasting lot of time waiting for the elevator or they can put escalators which is much easier. Overall it’s a nice place and I recommend it to visit it
