nice salina

not too big but well prepared for tourists. it has everything you may want in a salt mine museum, but for me too commercial (Wieliczka in Poland slightly better).

There is no way to describe the Turda Salt mines in a word, but amazing would pretty much do the trick. In an amazing descent into the bowls of the earth you will see structures worth of inspirining your imagination and make you feel like you're a character from the set of LoR and/ or Aliens. There are two main... More

Comparing to other salt mines it is small. But the conditions inside are nice. You can play bowling, biliards, mini-golf, buy souvenirs. You can user the elevator or you can go down for 13 floors. You can drive a little boat on salty lake.

The Salt mine is pretty easy to find and well sign posted. I would recommend getting there early to beat the queues as you do rely on lifts to get to the mines (well, unless you dare use the stairs!) It is very pretty inside, and each mine has been made in to a different style of attraction. If you... More

Beautiful place. Take a hoodie with you for the temperature is around 10-12°C. There are 13 storeys, you can use the elevator or you can climb the stairs, although I would reccomend climbing the stairs as the capacity of the elevator is only 4-7 people. Climbing the stairs takes no more than 6 minutes. There is a small lake at... More

If you want to see and feel the work and the history of a salt mine this is the place to be. With large rooms, with ecco chamber, with a lot of attraction for children, with salt lake hide in the deep of this mine it is a place were you want to be for more than a hour.

Impressive, but if you aren't coming with kids, it can be boring. Nothing much to do. Most of the time there is spent on the lines for the elevators... Notice that it's always cold inside, so dress accordingly.

Imagine getting 10k people daily on a lift with 7 people max capacity What will you do? Use the stairs... 13 floors of them to one level and another 13 to the lake. If they were normal stairs then fine, but they are the old miner ones and quite tricky Especially with a 2 year old... Once in there, you... More
