There are so many things you can do down there, that time will just fly while you inhale the healing salty air. There are all kinds of fun stuff for kids as well. Beware: visiting the salt mine is...

It's not an impressive mine, but it's very healthy. The kids have plenty of things to do. After a week daily being there, I wasn't sick for 5 years. It's not cheap, but it's worth visiting.

Very nice salt mine that, although not nearly as impressive as other similar locations, is very good value (60 ron/14 eur for 5 entrances) and caters to a number of different tastes, having an adventure park inside, a playground, a church and various facilities for entertaining people staying inside. Please note that the access is via stairs only (a significant... More

One of the largest saltmines in Eastern Europe. Great, inexpensive fun for all ages. There are lots of activities inside, even a church and an adrenaline parc. Bring a jacket! Even if it is 30+ on the top, it is always 15 C in the mine. Next to the mine you can find some salt water pools to bath in... More

If you expect to get an idea about how a salt mine was operated in the past and today, that you'll find a well trained guide to explain things and give you a tour, to understand why the salt roof doesn't fall, etc, you'd better forget about it. There are no guides, and not even the brochures you'd expect at... More

perhaps my expectations are too high after visiting the Turda salt mine, which is really impressive compared to Praid salt mine. yet are just huge rooms carved into salt good for therapy of respiratory problems.

It was exciting going down the mine by bus and entering a massive underworld. It is a mini town underground, with a church, a restaurant but it is best served as a playground for kids. Without any children we spent about an hour down there.
