Full description
Descend into the ancient salt mine of Turda, known as Salina Turda. The guide will share with you the origin of the salt rock formation and the fascinating history of salt exploitation. Take a walk along the gleaming galleries that look like something straight out of a science fiction movie, the deepest parts of the Earth. You can take some time on your own to explore and enjoy the gaming and amusement facilities displayed in the underground. Or you can simply have a seat, relax, breathe in the healthy salty air and, why not, imagine how it could have been if a Batman movie was shot inside. Depending on the arrival time (traffic influenced), the visit inside will last around two hours.

Great expriece

Tour guide is quite knowledgeable. He helped me to study lots about history and geograpical background of Salina Turda. I will never forget the wonderful experience to explore undergrond lake by a boat. At the end of the tour, he gave me some beautiful postcards of Romania, which are more charming than any others I found. I was really satisfied with the tour.

Excellent! What a great experience! Joseph was the consummate professional- he was punctual, very thoughtful/enthusiastic and extremely knowlegeable. We learned so many interesting facts about the Salt Mine and Cluj. We were beyond impressed with everything. I won't decribe the place, so that you'll have that element of surprise and enjoy it thoroughly. Joseph is like that cool teacher that everybody wants to have. By the way, he speaks English fluently. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Geta was great, she was knowledgeable about the mine and the history of the area. It was a pleasure having her as our personal guide through the breathtaking salt mine. Being picked up at our hotel and dropped off was also a great plus considering we had no rental car and the roads in Cluj can be challenging to navigate. Overall, it was an awesome experience! Would recommend.
