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

Visited in October so it was not very crowded. Unfortunatelly they close at 4pm in this time of the year. Not the most spectacular solt mine I've seen but it worth a visit or even more if you are after therapheutical effects. You can find plenty activities down there, from sports to 3d cinema. There is also an interesting church.... More

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
