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...

The salt mine at Turda has been turned into an amazing site, well worth visiting. It's nowhere close to the size of Wieliczka in Poland, but the lighting is unique and the Echoes Room is fabulous. If you fancy a good walk, you can take the access closer to town and follow the ~800m tunnel. It'd be nice if people... More

A must see objective when you are in Transilvania. It is close to Cluj and Targu-Mures int. airports, it is easy to reach by car and it is a good and healthy alternative for wasting your time at the shopping-mall. The activities can range from walking to playing different sports, taking a nice boat ride on the salty lake, getting... More

There are two entrances: the one closer to the town and you have to walk a lot through a tunnel till you reach the mine (not for claustrofobic people) and the new one outside the town. The salt mine is absolutely gorgeus and the view down to the lake is breathtaking. There are several levels: the last one has a... More

The salt mine, "Salina Turda" is the biggest of its kind in Europe, therefore it is a MUST SEE attraction in Romania. Don't miss this attraction even if you have to drive 100km to Turda. Children will be great-full as there are many activities to them inside the mine. Tip: at the lowest level... (I don't want to be a... More

We where traveling from Cluj napoca to the salt mine, and the trip up where about one hour drive. And it was really worth it! The mine is so nice. We walked for 700 meters in, and then down. And we managed to get our baby stroller with us down, without problems. I also tried the stairs, if you like... More

The Turda Salt Mine has been renovated however there is little information on the history of the mine which dates back to the Roman period in the region. It's slightly kitch and more like visiting a fun fair !!!
