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

An interesting place to visit not only because of its huge size and beauty, but also for its health benefits. Unfortunately the elevator does not work and the access was through the tunnel with mini buses that seriously pollute and that can change the look...More

Its relative proximity to Bucharest made it a desirable day trip...Parking was OK as well as Ticket prices very affordable...The transport provided was adequate and the Site itself was magnificent, although an American Company would've probably turned it into a hugely bigger touristic attraction !

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
