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

My son almost had a cold when we got there and in 3 days he is all better now. It is our first time for us to experience this kind of quick recovery. You can eat there and play , it keeps you busy for a long time. You only need money:-)

The salt mines of Romania are quite an unexpected experience. Salina Praid is somehow unique, enormous, relaxing... if you are not scared of underground places and of knowing there is only one way out. Overall, I like it more than all the other salt mines I have visited, even if it does not have all the neon lights other mines... More

To get in, you'll take a bus. A bus that will go quite fast. I advise you to stay in the front so that you can enjoy the ride and the view through the windscreen. If you turn your head to the left or right you'll see there's no more than 50 cm between the bus and the tunnel wall!... More
