An old salt mine, with soccer fields, basketball courts and table tennis, a church and a Salt museum, a salt lake and waterfall, wireless internet access. Children can play on playgrounds equipped with swings and slides.

Large halls at 9th level with a lot of zones for play: football, basketball, voley, karting (bio). A surprise to see a church inside also. Worth to go with your kids.

The salt mine is for sure unique (because of the inner church existing) and hopefully it has as well positive benefits for the health. One should read about it before going down, especially the part about temperature (constant at 12-13 Celsius). Beware of the roads to get there; especially the last 500-600 meters are really bad, but it is worthwhile... More

I have been many times here even before Revolution; I saw all the changes and I am happy to see the progress. I met people who told me that they are coming each year for medical issues .

Nice for a stop-over, the old salt mine is interesting by the size and the shape. They have a small museum inside, but is old and poorly designed, so the information you;ll get will be close to none. The bus ride to "the center of the earth" is thrilling, the salt smell in the mine is very interesting (and good... More

Mixed feelings here. For interested tourists, like us, it is worth a visit for like an hour, especially if you have never been in a salina. The busride down and up is fun in an old crowded bus. The church is beautiful and the museum is worth a view too. The lines of salt in the stone are enchanting as... More

A well organized bus service takes you down 280 mts, below ground. The galleries are wide , the roof carving is quite high so there is no feeling of being enclosed in. The floor is even and easy to walk on, The Greek ortodox chapel of Santa Barbara is beautiful and quite large. Religious images and frescoes on the walls,... More

I visited the salt mines recently. I was expecting something completely different. Once you get inside, the lovely Sf Varvara church is the first thing you come across. It is stunning and was carved out of the salt. Next yoy enter the large mine where there are some pictures of the mine from the past but that's it from a... More
