Slanic Prahova, lies in the forested hills of the Sub-Carpathians, at an altitude of 413m and approximately 100 km north of Bucharest. Slanic is an all-season spa resort, which prides itself for its curative mineral waters, which have been used since 1885, but its main claim to fame is the spectacular Salt Mountain, the second biggest salt mine in Europe.
The entrance is done today with small transit cars because the elevator is out of order for some time already.
It is important to notice that the floors are of salt and are very slippery , there are only a few places with some rubber carpet. It is recommended to elderly people to use walking sticks.
The place is amazing. not seen in other countries.

Truly an impressive location, the sheer size of it is astonishing and it does have a bit of an eerie feeling to it. I'm terms pf Organization it's far from perfect( although much better than previous years). Bring a jumper at the very least. All in all a great experience.

The access in to the mine is done by two elevators that make the transport of the visitors possible. The way down with the elevator is 208 meters long and it lasts almost 3 minutes. The humidity of the air is circa 50% and the air composition in the mine is richer in sodium ions that have spectacular ameliorative and prophylactic effects, what the breathing deficiencies and diseases are concerned. Also, in the salt mine there have been arranged playing grounds, a sports ground, a room with tables for billiards and a bar room.
We can also admire the statues of Decebal and Traian, carved in salt by the artist Iustin Nastase.

Be prepared. Buy yourself a picnic and bring some warm clothes (even in the height of summer as its 12 degrees in the more), and brace yourself to queue and then be bumped down into the mine in a nonsense old minibus. But it is worth it. The scale is unimaginable as you walk around a series of galleries more enormous than the largest cathedrals. The strata in the rocks is beautiful. Romanians come down here to rest, play and picnic, believing the air is healthy for you. I am glad I didn't wimp out of the queuing as this truly was unique. I hope in time it will become a bit more customer friendly because its awesome
