Salt Mine Turda 1 day minivan tour from Oradea
With over 2, 000 years of history, highly preserved galleries, and a futuristic underground attraction, Saltmine Turda is the largest salt mine museum in the world, and easily the most incredible.
When you visit, you'll head down about 400-feet before reaching the submerged wonderland.
Once inside, you'll find an amphitheater, a bowling alley, an underground lake with paddle and row boats, and even a Ferris wheel.
Salt extraction on the site's surface started in antiquity, but the work expanded underground during the Roman occupation of Dacia. The salt was extracted manually using pickaxes, hammers, chisels, and steel wedges, by free people who were paid in florins, ale, and loaves of bread. The mine was closed in 1932, but it was used again during World War II as a bomb shelter. After the war, the mine served several purposes, one of which was a warehouse for storing cheese.
Saltmine Turda is one of the most stunning places anywhere on or IN the planet.
