During my stay in Romania, this was one of my favorite places to visit. All of this was created by men! It's huge! And so much fun: carnival style and playgrounds, and not to mention rowing boats around the mines! Very COOL.

Turda Salt Mine was the creation of thousands of men. There are many tunnels but the most interesting is The large room below where you can descend by a glass elevator. Children have a small playground, there is a lake with boats and areas for playing bowling, mini-golf, etc. There are also treatment rooms.

This was my first time inside a salt mine. I breathed the freshest air I have ever breathed down there. There's some cool salt stalactites and small bits of history, but all of the indoor activities are cheap and tacky endeavors to grab more money. Most pointless Ferris wheel I've ever seen since you enter the cave its in higher... More

This is indeed astonishing and if you are in the area this is a must see! We were lucky that there was not so many visitors but at times there can be a long queue for the elevators.

Unbelievable, amazing, this should be viewed by all of you, few attractions inside the mine like mini golf, bowling, table tennis... just being there is very healthy for the people with respiration diseases...

I recommend to take all 26 floor steps if your physical condition is fine! Combined with the salty air the result is more than good.

This is a wonderful place. A salt mine like this is well known for terapeutic activities, most for the respiratory system. This is why the treatment is taken usually in more steps than a simple visit. In order to spend the necessary time as good as it can be, there are a lot of things to do there like playing... More

If you pass by Turda, a city near Cluj Napoca, you have to visit The Salt Mine. It has two entrances, but i recommend the oldest one. At the new entrance the parking place is always full with cars and therefor it's hard to find a free spot. There is no parking fee, only an entrance fee. To reach the... More

The salt mine is very beautifully organised, the lighting is very good as well. For some reason you can play ping-pong, billiard or bowling inside the mine (the echo makes it really annoying), but on the bright side you can rent a boat and row along a small lake, which is super cool :) Overall the place is amazing and...
