This place is impresive. There are three or four gigantic caves built in salt where you can spend several hours. It is good for your healtf. The transport in and out the salt mine is made by the bus and not by using the elevator or stairs.

This place is really impresive. There are three gigantic caves built in salt where you can spend several hours. The transport to and from this salt mine is made with the bus and not by using the elevator. A good hint is to take cash with you due the fact that the mine is 120 meters underground. Don't worry about... More

We went there in the beginning of December, with our 5y.o. daughter. Even though you willhave to find a parking space, which is not very close especially when is raining/snowing, the salt mine compensated it fully. Kids have their atractions inside, so they can burn their energy, but pay attention to the schedule, which is rather strange only till 4pm.... More

Go to the town of Praid, buy a ticket at the bus station, jump on a bus and be driven through a pitch black tunnel into the center of a mountain. Get off and walk down about 150 steps, go through some doors and into a really surreal world. We expected a bit of a tour around a salt mine,... More

The air is so clean, very interesting place, there are asthma therapies, a chapel, playground for children, coffee shop, restaurant. The air is always moving. You can walk, or just sit down a bench. I would go back

The salt mine has all the facilities needed for an enjoyable stay: big space, clean air, organized activities (gymnastics), small church, children playgrounds, adventure park, bar and canteen, free internet. It's better to visit off-season, otherwise can be crowded.

The place is amazing. It's like a small city underground with many facilities like restaurant, coffee shop, cinema, kids activity place, church, gift shops etc. There are many activities that can be done like ping pong, bedmington etc. Around all areas are many benches and chairs so it's easy to find a place to stay and rest. Although it's really... More

They take you in the salt mine with an old bus which is very crowded since the ticket to the mine doesn't include a seat in the bus! Inside, there is an adventure park, mostly for kids, 'cause it's small.. Some playgrounds for kids, a cinema-also for kids.. Some shops where you can buy salt (you can also buy the... More

A place to see where you can spend a lot of time, where children have places to play and not gettin' bored. After you reach to the entry, you buy a ticket and then you have to take a special bus wich is taking you to the mine. Go in and you'll love it.
