We have been 3 days in a row to visit the salt mine. Is not a quiet place, btu defenitly is a place where kids and grow-ups has something to do to spend their time. The only minus is the lack of an elevator and for a family with small kids the stairs are not very easy to use.

Intresting place to visit as tourist. It was very nice the clibing activities inside the salt mine. It was very funny seeing all these local people spending the whole day in the salt mine playing, having pic nic etc. The only real negative was that the WCs were very dirty, without ..water

I was invited by a colleague & must say I accepted with a little trepidation as I am not one for closed or confined spaces. After buying the entrance ticket and boarding the bus that enters into the top part of the mine my nerves had calmed a little. The remainder of the journey down is completed on foot down... More

Visiting it during summer holiday was not such an inspired idea. Not to mention that the day was rainy: everyone wants to go indoor somewhere... underground ;). After waiting in a very long queue to buy tickets, we were taken underground by bus thru a very narrow tunnel. Inside it was to crowded.

Several sories below ground level a huge area equipped with underground wifi, adventure park, bars, a church, etc. A truely unique experience for everyone. A must-see if you're in Transylvania. Also, the main point of the whole trip to enjoy the benefits of the air filled with salt salt particles. :)

The salt mine in Praid is more a theme park than an exploration of a defunct mine. Very little to learn about mining, but all the entertainment Romanians appreciate! To see how the Romanians enjoy themselves is an attractions by itself  In the mine they play badminton, table tennis and they enjoy swings, an adventure park and go to... More

Well organized, the ticket line moves fast, buses are on time. Inside is great, very spacious, there were around 2000 people inside and it didn' t feel crowded at all. I would reccomend a visit there, it is worth it.
