Salina Turda, Turda

4.3
#2 of 37 in Spas in Romania
Board a panoramic wheel and observe the 1,000-year-old stalagmites, or row across a small underground lake at Salina Turda. Romans began unearthing this huge underground mine in the 2nd century. It was closed in 1932 and reopened for tourists in 1992. Old mining machines take visitors through its massive halls, and the textured salt caves also house spa equipment for halotherapy. The pressure and dampness of the caves help in the treatment of asthma and allergies. The mine also features a family entertainment area with ping pong tables and bowling lanes, an echo chamber, a crystal hall, and a 50 m (164 ft) wide and 80 m (262 ft) long hall.

    In the season, choosing to mine does not make much sense. First in the queue is 50 minutes on the burner. Later goes to Goose up the stairs down. Unless someone wants to wait a few tens of minutes for an elevator that takes 4 people at a time and goes slowly. You can play pink Pong, bowling (for an additional fee). The only attraction that was good was the rowboats. We weren't. The queue is even greater than the elevator to go down (let a few people), and later still queue to the boat.

    If you want to visit a special place, Salina is perfect! It is an ancient salt mine, plenty of activities for children! There is even a promenade in boats (we did it)! Only bad point: avoid going ther...  more »

    The Salina is always a detour. When it is hot, it is pleasant in the Saltworks. So fresh that long clothing is recommended. We are went in through the old entrance. No queues at the entrance. The elevators are always very full and with long snake. But the stairs are always free.
