We went everyday for 9 days; I found the ticket process a bit different from other salt mines. When you get a discounted season ticket you cannot skip a day and you cannot extend it cheaply if you get the days wrong Bus wise you don't wait for that long, but then beware of the stairs... there are about 240...

Had a great time with kids at Salina Praid. Plenty of fun places for kids, even an adventure park with challenging tracks. Bring your table tennis accessories or any other fun activities, playing cards, chess, etc... All people in there are staying for more than 3 hours underground and having fun. Some eat, some play games, some read. I will... More

It is less of a salt mine than a mall under the ground (in what used to be a salt mine). It is crowded, with loud music and there are only shops, bars, restaurant, a cinema and big spaces occupied with people playing badminton. I admit there is a small corner where the history of the salt mine is written... More

It's 15 lei and a bus will take all the people inside the mine 1,2 km. Its huge inside, like a big park for everyone: adventure park, inflatable tobogan for kids, ping pong tables etc.

Probably the best salt mine in Romania, as you have a lot here inside: table tennis, aventura park, shops, coffee&tea terrace, medical assistance, half an hour workout session, toilets, and a good restaurant with traditional food and wine. You can take something for reading, but don't forget some good clothes: there's only 15 Celsius inside. For this reason, the best... More

The salt mine is an interesting place to visit. It offers a lot of activities while inside: kids playground, tables for dinning, adventure area, restaurant, winery, museum.

The coach trip to the entance inside the salt mine was fun. The statue and reading of St Barbara was a surprise I greatly enjoyed as my daughter is called Barbara and her birthday is 17 July. Apart from that not much for me.

You start by jumping on this old bus and I am pretty sure the driver was trained on a roller-coaster simulator. Once inside you can wander around and read the history of the mine. Alternatively you can climb and go on a zip line. They have table tennis or just bring your own badminton or football gear. Apparently the air... More

Have visited there in June when the outside temperature was around 30 celsius. Inside (120 meters deep) it is steady 15.6 which created a soothing and relaxing environment. The cave and the passages are huge and the ceiling is very high. The place is equipped with many sport attractions for children who come there for respiratory problems healing. Worth spending...

From the outside, things looked disorganized and not very well cared for. But when we went inside the salt-mine we were impressed. There are many things to do there: a large adventure park for both kids and adults, playground for kids, restaurant and caffe, organized gymnastics classes some small shops. The salt-mine itself is impressive. Worth a visit
