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

I was there on vacantion and I was impressed by the large size of the mine and how it is organized. The ticket cost 22 RON (about 5 euros) per person and transportation to the mine is done with a bus.

In winter it's a much more lively environment in the salt-mine underground than the village above. Families with a lot of children spend here more than 4 hours every day for about 12 days, curing their breathing deseases.

I have visited the place more than 10 years ago first time, since then it has changed a lot. Recently there have been implemented a lot of possibilities to spend time for all ages (church, kids corner, cinema, adventure park, etc). There is a full mobile network underground, backed up by a free wifi. On the way out you can... More

For nearly 2 years we tried everything and every doctor in UK, US and DK…all they could recommend is a steroid cream and said she might grow out of it. After a 3 day (3hrs) a day visit to the salt mines, it went away (about a week later) and 6 months later, it has stayed away. She's had it... More

Our family wanted to visit the mine because my great grandfather had worked there before immigrating to the States. We expected the visit to be interesting, simply because of the ties to our past. The visit was so much more. From the sheer size of the mines, to the chapel, to the elevated obstacle course, to the restaurant to the... More
