Turda Salt Mine, Turda

(4.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Board a panoramic wheel and observe the 1,000-year-old stalagmites, or row across a small underground lake at Turda Salt Mine. 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. Put Turda Salt Mine at the forefront of your travel plans using our Turda vacation builder.

  • The place is absolutely stunning. Even my husband who is difficult than surprise, was in awe. This is a must see with your own eyes, no stories and pictures do not convey as much as grandiose and unusual. If you're going to Romania, then be sure to take some time and visit the small, cozy but totally inconspicuous town to turda, with its so amazing attraction.
