Very interesting experience

The water is so salty you cant even swim, very funny :-) Salt and mould are healthy for skin. Level of services, food, drinks and prices are okay for such outside complex.

Took public bus from Sibiu. Easy. Seems to be various options as to price/services/ "luxury" . We picked least expensive. Clean public toilets and showers. Reasonably priced and convenient places to eat/drink.

This is a great place to go if you want to swim in salt water or get covered in mud. Those activities have a good impact on your... More

The lakes are easy to locate and their salted water is good for the health. There are also several places where you can have a good meal and relax.

Having a bath in brine and getting packed in mud is something you'll have to do - for fun, if nothing else - once in a lifetime, at least. The place has a certain 1900 charm and I can't say I mind it.

not sure where you can find other places like this. incredible experience as a non swimmer. I can only recommend to include this as a nice destination, if you're visiting Sibiu in summer.

I am sure that other reviewers did not know what they were visiting. These are mud baths formed on the remains of a Roman Salt Mine. In Western Europe people pay a fortune for the basic treatments you give yourself here for pence. Changing facilities are basic - you change behind a discrete screen - and health and safety is...

the lakes in ocna sibiului are very famous across romania as there is a very high salt concentration and you basically can not drown, you stay floating because it is so salty, in the summer time it is a very popular tourist attraction

I like because you can see many lakes and you can swim (and also you can make tramament), i liked that there is a nice pub where you can sit and drink a bottle of wine.....The prices of accomodation are too expensive
