I expected something more spectacular - after being talked into going there. Fair way to spend a couple of hours, if you have nothing else to do. It is impressive to take the stairs and to see the evolution of the mine by year. I guess it's funny to row a boat at the bottom of the mine and feel... More

If you have nothing more interesting to do that day. Than go for it. It is boring and tiring. I recommend to visit the little towns arround instead of this place.

In Romania on a medical mission trip and was not sure what to expect when told by our host we were touring a salt mine. Thought it would just be that, a salt mine, but found it to be quite different. Long lines for elevators and saw a mini amusement underground. Would not advise taking anyone who is handicap as... More

The salt mine is one of the most beautiful in Romania, if not Europe. Very easy to get there by following the road sings placed all over the city. The sights inside are amazing, really beautiful. There are multiple entertainment possibilities: boat sayling on the interior lake, ping pong and.... going up and down using the stairs, not the elevator.... More

The former salt mine [was in use since end of XIX-th century] was modernised in the last decade. An impressive effort was put in place to improve access and activities in the mine. A distinct treatment section [isoleted and with controlled access] is located in another area of the mine than the agrement zone. So no danger of getting in... More

The disused salt mine can easily provide a full day's attraction for the entire family. The tunnels are stunning, and the historic explanations about the place are just about right: informative, although not overbearing. A nice touch is also the restoration of the old names for various halls and mine shafts undergrounds (such as Franz Josef, for instance) notwithstanding the... More

Around 10°C inside the salt mine. You can take a short boat trip, you can play mini-golf, bowling, ping-pong or ride a ferris wheel. Or you can simply read a book while enjoying the health benefits this place has to offer.
