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

Transportation is very organized. Once your are down in the mine, maximize your time. Take a book, play some games, etc. It's very therapeutic for your respiratory system. We met parents down in the mine that told us how going regularly cleared their child's asthma. It's a very neat place to spend a few hours. Lots of great historical information... More

Great location, very effective transportation into the salt mine, cheap, very nice arrangements in the mine. A little unpleasant smell coming from the restaurant. Otherwise it's a must see !

It's simlpy a must, an experience you'll always remember. Regular visits or cures are extremly efficient in treatment of asthma or allergy.

Entrance is now RON 22 but we spent a good couple of hours enjoying the various areas of this large mine. Rather commercialised but some useful history panels in Hungarian Romanian and English. Probably more interesting for children but we felt worth a visit. We would also recommend the nearby Salt Canyon - a very interesting 3km walk with very... More

Not a good place for stressed people. It's a kind of an underground fair, noisy and crowded. No way to be a place for treatment since salt smell is long gone due to other owerwhelming smells food from the upstairs restaurant cavern. Seems no ventilation in place working also. The air is stall and the place is more like an... More

"Salina Praid" is a really interesting place and such a pleasant way of spending a few hours. I've visited salt mines before and this one is just as nice as the others. The fee is only 20 lei (4,5 euros) for adults and 12 lei (3 euros) for children. After you buy your ticket, you have to wait for the... More

I was very impressed with this one. This was my first salt mine experience. We took a bus overground and that takes you down into the mine in 5 minutes. Then we had to take stairs down into the mine. Once you get there its like a small village, with kids playground, cafe and eatery. It is good for people... More
