Two natural wonders

First stop is Unirea Salt Mine from Slanic region, located in the Subcarpati hills. Also here they have seven salted lakes . The salt mine is located 208 meters underground it is known for its healing effects, due to the purity of the air having a constant temperature inside of 12 degrees Celsius ( 54 Fahrenheit ). It is impressive by size, being one of the largest in Europe. After this on the way to the Muddy Volcanoes we are going to drive through some traditional villages . The Muddy Vulcaneos are located in national park and they are still active, spreading mud, you will witness a unique phenomenon.
I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests or if you are more than 4 people and need a larger vehicle.
