the salt mine was suggested by our hotel in Cluj who also encouraged us to travel independently on public transport (the mini bus only costs £1.50 each way!). It was worth the trip - a long walk down a tunnel into the mountain takes you past several galleries then down a flight of stairs to the main hall. It is a huge - a viewing gallery all around gives a great panoramic view. Take the lift (to avoid 13 flights of stairs) into the hall where rather strangely a number of amusements await at nominal cost. We opted for bowling and the boat hire in the salt lake ... all hundreds of feet below the earth's surface! Very different.

This underground salt mine is a facinating look at hundreds of years of mining. There is a long walk through the passage that was used to haul out the salt then and set of stairs to the main chamber. The enormity is difficult to explain but is something that needs to be seen. And then there is the ferris wheel and pool tables... there are several activities at the bottom of the chamber including little boats to paddle around. This is a very interesting, kind of creepy but surprizing place.

The place is recently renovated. Everything is very well organized. I recommend the stairs, because it is a more interesting experience than the elevator (which was also a bit crowded). In there, you can play ping pong, billiard, mini-golf. Also, you can rent a boat on the underground lake
