    Salina Turda
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    You will descend into the underground where you'll completely be surrounded by salt. Walk on a man-made gallery, visit three mining chambers, learn about mining techniques and local urban legends and, nevertheless, take a boat or a Ferris-wheel ride. The visit of the mine involves climbing and descending some stairs. In total there about steps to go up and down, but most of them can be avoided by taking two different elevators.

Amazing place. More than worth the driving there. Forget the elevators since they have long lines and take your time using the stairs up and down. Try the boats down in the gallery.

Brilliant way to spend a few hours
Feb 2020 • Friends
We had a great time here as two adults. There’s a lake which is further down than the other attractions which you can get a row boat out on, this is definitely a different experience and something I’d recommend.

We went on the Ferris wheel and had a go at the crazy golf. They’ve tried to keep it as authentic as possible whilst putting these attractions in which adds to the grand feeling of the place.

It would be a great place for the kids once they’re 4ish and can be trusted not to completely wander off (as there are stairways that it would be easy to disappear through if your eyes weren’t on them the whole time) as there’s lots to do, and areas where adults can sit whilst the kids amuse themselves at the golf, bowling and playground like area.

There’s a little stall down there selling souvenirs and market type stalls outside the place selling a greater range of general Cluj & Romania souvenirs.

I’m really pleased we decided to visit here for a few hours as it was definitely something different to experience and I’d recommend it to anyone who hasn’t been there before!

Fabulous experience
Jan 2020 • Couples
We visited mid-week, it wasn’t too busy. It’s amazing to see and very large inside. You can take the lift the 13 floors down or use the stairs if your feeling energetic. The walls are stunning the way they’ve been cut out. The lake is lovely to go for a row on on and relax. It’s hard to put into the words the beauty inside.

Unique and definitely worth a visit. It is difficult to put into words the uniqueness of this place, especially its grand space when you take the lift down. I also enjoyed learning the history of the mine which is linked to the history of Romania. Do go there if you can.

We were picked up promptly at our designated time. On our way to the salt mines Geta explained the different lifestyles of people living in Transylvania. Geta was very friendly and also very knowledgeable about the salt mines. She also talked about Romanian history regarding the salt mines and answered all our questions. Very enjoyable for everyone!

Really exceeded expectations!
Nov 2019
I didn't know what to expect from the tour, mainly because I didn't think salt mines would be that interesting. Yet, many online reviews seemed to have recommended it, so I decided to give it a shot. Was originally planning on taking public transportation but figured I also wanted a guide to explain things, so picked this tour.

I had Joseph as my guide, who was SO knowledgeable and kind, catering to all my needs. Also very on time regarding pick up, which is always commendable. Tour itself is quite flexible, in terms of how much time you want to stay in the mines. Would definitely recommend to anyone in Cluj!

Turda Salt mine tour
We did the 4 hour Salt mine tour with Geta. She collected us from our motel and it was very informative from the time we got into her car until we returned. She explained the whole history of the mine and being a ‘local’ was able to give us all that extra information of the area as well. We would thoroughly recommend it. Such a great experience.
