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.
