It's a great salt mine, huge inside and with lots of activities and possibilities to spend your time while inhaling the salty air. Totally recommended for anyone being in Cluj for more than 1 day.

What i like about this change that was done some time ago to the salt mine was that they now offer a lot of activities for the time spent there - for grownups, but also for the kids. There is also a theater there, but never assisted an event....would like to sometime.... A minus is that , even if the... More

Tip - don't use the elevator, use the stairs. It may seem hard to climb but it does wonders to your lungs :) Really good for children with lot of activities (bowling, pool, table tennis) It s sad that they have only a couple of boats and long waiting queues are formed, we did not have the patience to wait.

This is an ancient salt mine that is still being used for its original purpose but that has also been arranged to be suitable for tourist visits. And indeed it was a very pleasant visit. The mine is very well lit throughout, and doesn't make one feel claustrophobic, unlike most mines of this sort. Compared to the Altausee salt mine... More

If you are in the Cluj area, then this place is worth a visit. 20 RON gets you entrance into what is effectively a mini fun park deep underground. As such it will be of less interest to people who are expecting a museum or any historic information regarding the site (perhaps this is in a guide book, but certainly... More

Hi all, perhaps I was unlucky on the day but had the joy of dealing with the staff in a very upsetting manner. I visited together with my wife, son and nephew and asked before entrance if we can use the elevator to descend in the mine. We were told yes as long as we fold the pram. Long story... More

We traveled to the mines from Cluj and it took about 90 minutes to get there.You cross the city of Turda and huge signs with arrows will direct you to the magnificent entrance. We arrived early at about 11 am and the place at this time of the year was almost deserted.We were quite alone in the huge mine.A young... More

A park inside the salt mine is quite impressive. Going to Turda using public transportation. Alis Grup costs 7 Lei or approximately USD 2.00 oneway. However, there is not an obvious signage for the salt mine but you can ask locals for direction and they are very helpful. Also tell the bus driver that you are going to Salina Turda... More

For Romania is something unique. The saltmine is renovated in a futuristic style. It is really breathtaking. I enjoyed most the boat ride. The bad side is that it is crowded and you cannot eat inside.
