Impressive underground salt mine with underground lake and attractions for kids, even small stage with performance. Needs better organisation to move the people around as the stairs can get crowded. Lift only takes 4 people at a time. Would make me feel better if they...More

It is one of the most beautiful places visited in Romania. It is a large saline with various activities (playground for children, mini golf, boat ride) can be descended or climbed by elevator or stairs (depending on the physical condition)

The city of Turda is nothing much. But the salt mine...oh! That's an unexpected beauty! A lot of stairs and long lines at the elevators especially during summer, but worth it! Make sure to have water with you and go to the bathroom before going...More

The way down is either through the 172 steps OR the modern lift, but if you want the authentic experience and the ride through time, but also to avoid the lift waiting time, take the stairs down to the floor of the mine. There you...More

Who knew there was a Disneyland 26 stories below ground hidden in a salt mine! Whether you hike down the stairs, or wait for the elevator, there are two different 13 story levels to traverse to two different areas that have rides and games for...More

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
