Turda Salt Mine, Turda
(4.3/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • We stayed last year in October, a spectacle of nature, fun for both kids, for adults! During the tour you can stop even for treatment or do some exercise! World Heritage site I highly recommend it to all of you!

  • This site is worth a visit! As the rest of the Romania, is not very expensive (bus) to take from Cluj-Napoca then taxi or on foot to finish. Admission is either excessive and worth the visit. If possible, take a tour with a guide and prefer to go off season and a rainy day (in December, we were almost alone!). The galleries and the different rooms are awesome! We learn many things on the exploitation of salt. Signs in English explain information. And further, attention to Vertigo! I leave you the surprise. A little disappointed about the end of the visit where it's a little Disney...

  • Unbelievable but true, what we here have seen in this salt mine, beyond anything previously known. The Dronenrennen, which was organized by the Drone Champions League was simply the absolute hammer! Here is complies. Video only to recommend to get a glimpse of this event!
