It's really pretty down there, and the tunnels are cool, but once you're down, there is only so much you can do. You can't eat or drink so not really ideal for a full day activity.

If you want to visit a special place, Salina is perfect! It is an ancient salt mine, plenty of activities for children! There is even a promenade in boats (we did it)! Only bad point: avoid going there on week ends, the site is full!

Very interesting, astonishing and full of joy place. For sure worth of visit. Active sight seeing takes even more than 2 hours. It's good to take warm close like swearshirt.

We did not know much about this place so had little expectations.Overall it is a good place that offers new experiences to both adults and children alike. Be it the underground lake and boat experience or the echo chamber everthing is quite interesting.

You would need to put it into your GPS to plot how far it is. That will also get you the directions to the mine. If you don't have a SIM card for Romania, download maps.me for offline GPS directions. If you do download... More

There are elevators but when it is crowded you should wait a lot:( so try to go in week days. I would recommend to ask if they have a special solutions for the people who can have difficulties while they are walking.

The Salt Mine is a gem, but as others have said, if you do not plan to spend some time in Cluj as well (although you should, if you can), the trip may be a bit of a stretch. Public transportation is not among the best things... More
