although the parking was very hard to find, and we went there in full season, the visit was interesting. the mine is very well equiped and prepared for tourists.

Good point: It is very nice to see this salt mine. They are plany of activities for children and it is very healthy to stay a few hours. Bad points: the organisation of transport need to be improve. The buses are old and scary. When you entered the long tunnel to bring you to the entrance of the Mine, they... More

We went there around 9:30 am and was able to find parking easily and there were no line up at the ticket booth. Older buses were taking us down to the mine and it was not crowded either. When we came out we see a long line up, crowded buses and no parking around the entrance so it was worth... More

We took (me&wife) a week to make a salt cure (twice) and it worth it. It boost our immune system. They have plenty of big opening space with benches, in some places there are free wi-fi and tv, table tennis space, kids space, restaurants and bars, indoor museum and a wooden church. In the morning there is a free fitness... More

The mine is fine, big but Turda Mine is better. In Praid you can also go to the swimming pool but it is also very crowded. In order to have an umbrella and a sunbed we must be there at 8 00 even the acces on the complex is allowed only at 10.

Salt mine, an interesting place, a beautiful place worth visiting but unfortunately a very poorly managed place. Access is in some ancient and old buses where travelers have less space than sardines in a can (thousands of tourists and only two buses Euro 1), access in that old buses is made using muscles, a frail person having no chance of...

The access in mine is by bus. It's like you take the subway. After that you only need to use some stairs and you're there. There is also wifi connection, but not always working, mobile signal is great, they have a restaurant but only opened until 17.30 (the salt mine closes at 20.00), a cafeteria, church and this very nice...

I toured the salt mine in Parajd without knowing what to expect, so it was unlikely that I was going to be disappointed. It was, in fact, a very interesting experience. I didn't expect this other world to exist below ground - one in which there are restaurants, playgrounds, rides, art, and even a church. There's a daily worship service,... More

a wonderful trip to the mountain of salt. Caves very high, playgrounds for children, a small restaurant, a church, an "adventure park" extraordinary, all of them in this unique salt mine.

I visited this salt mine with my wife expecting a rather dull tour. To my pleasant surprise, it was a whole lot more fun and interesting. They have a cinema, a "go ape" (a Transylvanian version, but not less fun or challenging) a wine cellar, restaurant and plenty to see. I had a great time and would definitely recommend it.... More
