Slănic mine is an old salt mine, located in Slănic, Prahova County, Romania, 100 km north of Bucharest.[1][2] The salt mine is closed for extraction purposes, but is open for visitors, featuring a microclimate with natural air-conditioning and constant temperature and atmospheric pressure throughout the year. It is made up of two levels, named Unirea and Mihai. Many of the visitors come for its supposed healing effects due to the purity of the air.

We had a tour guide but the museum is quite small. We did go here after we had been to the mine and found more about salt mines.

Do not expect to visit a museum. There are some artifacts (the exploitation started in [the year] 1900), but there are only a few in display. What is impressive is the sheer size of the mineral deposit and the way human activity carved gigantic tunnels that look more like over-sized cathedral ceilings. The entire place gives the impression of overwhelming natural grandeur disproportionate to the anything that is man-made. Stepping in the main corridor, I felt utterly small as a human being, people look the size of mice, maybe even smaller. The lighting is very artistic and not too ostentatious (except the "Christmas-y light installation by the bridge). A section of the mine functions as an ambulatory for aerosol treatment. There is also a section dedicated to the ancient history of the country (statues of the local ancient king "Decebalus" who fought against the roman king, Trajan). I also enjoyed the "van ride", in total darkness, through the tunnel that lead to the mine entrance. It's a very nice place to visit in a rainy, cold day. I tried this fun game with my preteen: spot the communist emblem on the walls of the mine.

The electric lift was shut town, the access is now done with micro-buses. The waiting time for the micro-buses is high, there is no organisation where the line of people is formed. I suggest creating a maze, in order to keep the line, like the ones they use for roller-coasters. The mine itself isn't well managed, there is always the rist of parts of the ceiling collapsing. Someone is making a lot of money, putting visitors at risk.

What was promised as a “trip of a lifetime to an underground Salt mine” more resembles something from the Flinstones

Two basic toilets for males and females and urine all over the floor is what greets you at the start of the “tour”

The man winder is like all of the infrastructure and has degraded to the extent that it now is inoperable.

Instead you are herded like cattle into mini buses and driven 20 mins over bumpy non-maintained underground roads like Aust coal Mines had in the 70’s.

Total lack of safety and upon one of the group having a medical issue there was absolutely no emergency response protocols except tour guides and drivers standing around having a smoke and shaking their head.

Romania is like travelling back in time and the mine at Slanic is no different although if you have absolutely nothing to do and want to waste a complete day by all means put this on your list.

An interesting museum, as it exhibits in a small space a history of serval centuries. It is housed in a mansion dating back to the 18th century, called Camarasiei House. Worth seeing.

The guide was really friendly to allow us even after closure hours. The museum is simple, technical and needs an investment.
Pretty informative and the house that hosts the museum is a very nice historic monument. Try it! It's very cheap also ;)

it is in the middle way more or less between Brashov and Bucarest . You come to car parking. Then after buying tickets you take a minibus . after 3 minutes you enter a tunnel with poor lights and continue with minibus for 10 minutes. Then you get off minibus and walk for 30 meter and then e n t e r ...
You feel breath taken....it is a salt mine 80 meter tall like from a science fiction movie . in opposite what you think... very very fresh air( not like the tunnel with the minibus)..12 deg all the year . a lot of children playing around . good for health. huge place .. and one coffee machine also..

It is a really small museum, but there is a man there who will tell you all about it. He will explain every bit of the historu of the place! Only that he will do it in romanian, so hopefully you will have a good translator...
