We did park the car on the paid parking lot (gps 45.234739, 25.940385) and walked to the ticket office. We needed to wait 15 minutes before the shuttle bus did leave to the entrance of the tunnels 1km south (gps 45.226548, 25.937597). A long ride...More
It is a quite unusual and spooky going down into the mine, 208 meters from bottom to the top of the hill! Exploration of the salt started in 1938! Air is very good for breathing problems by the effects of salt. There is a small...More

The salt is unique in its own way, it was mostly exploited during the communist regime. The entrace to the salt mine is done by tourist bus (when I was younger it was done by elevator - now broken). It's especially good for kids and...More
impresive mine, poor activities to spend time..it only needs creative minds to develop some interesting activies down there in the salt mine and good marketing agency to promote that place and this changes easily this poor place into an attraction
My wife and I visited the salt mine when she was 6 month pregnant, no problems at all. But then again, back then the elevator was in service, not the stupid minibuses that defeat the purpose of the salt mine by their diesel... More
