Salina Turda

“Salina Turda”


At 400 feet below the earth’s surface, the Salina Turda Salt Mine was originally established in the 17th century and was formed completely by hand with salt extraction continuing through to 1932. Afterwards, the massive underground space was used for a variety of things including cheese storage center and acting as a bomb shelter in World War II. With over 2,000 years of history, highly preserved galleries, and a futuristic underground attraction, Salina Turda is the largest salt mine museum in the world, and easily the most incredible.

The innovative look of this gargantuan amusement park seems like something out of a science fiction movie. It contains attractions like an amphitheater, an underground lake that may be explored with paddles and row boats, a ferris wheel, spa treatment rooms with natural aerosols, bowling alley, mini-golf, sport field, table tennis, pool tables.

Salina Turda is one of the most amazing places anywhere on or IN the planet.
