The salt mine offers a beatiful view from the top, especially the small little island surrounded by a small lake inside the salt mine. The architecture which mostly made out of wood are also beautiful. We spend a bot 2 hour here where the kids is olaying mini golf and also taking a ride on the carousel. And for those... More

So you've probably seen this place on a list of unusual attractions around the world, the photograph of the boating lake from above in particular. And while it is out of the way, it's worth a visit for the novelty of it if nothing else. It is a disused salt mine, and the walls are indeed made of salt! You... More

Great place to visit. 120 meters deep, there's quite a lot to descend and to go upstairs back, but elevators are available. At the bottom of the salt mine entertainment is available in the form of pool tables, mini golf, bowling and ping pong. There's also a lake where you can make a boat trip.

Turda Salt Mine it's a very good experience for both adults and children. The mine itself is beautiful -- you can see the salt all throughout the rock walls. This salt mine is a must see, if you are near the location. You can do many activities here and have great time. Highly recommend renting a paddle boat to float... More

The salt mine is equal parts interesting mine history and kid-friendly amusement park----when do you ever read that? Its a bizarre mix that somehow works. The mine itself is beautiful -- you can see the salt all throughout the rock walls. Highly recommend renting a paddle boat to float around the man-made lake at the bottom of a giant salt... More

We had heard about this place and visited other salt mines (in other parts of the world in past), but we were not ready for what we saw! It was truly amazing! Loved the entire experience and loved how they had developed this into an interesting attraction. Didnt go on the ferris wheel but the row boating was pretty cool!
