Very nice place. Recommended for respiratory problems. Salt (also love:)) ) is in the air . Sport activities available, both for grown-ups and for children. It's something magic of how they transformed a salt mine in such a nice place for visitors.

It was pretty awesome! I hadn’t expected it to be so spectacular. Huge caverns! Fun row boats too! A great place to visit but possibly not if you have any mobility issues. Lots to do for kids too.

When I realised that this salt mine was just a short bus ride out of Cluj, I had to visit for the novelty. And novel it was. After reading the sobering history about the people and horses that worked the mine, it was a light...More
