Salt Mine Day Trip from Bucharest

    What to Expect
    This trip is your chance to discover two extraordinary places in Europe: Slanic Prahova Salt Mine and The Salt Mountain. Slanic Prahova is an all-season spa resort, famous for its curative mineral waters, but its main attraction is the spectacular Salt Mine, one of the biggest in Europe and famous for its healing effects. The temperature is constant all year round at 12 degrees C, humidity at 50%, the air composition is rich in sodium ions, at atmospheric pressure of 18-20 mm Mercury column, higher than that on the surface of the ground; the lack of allergenic agents creates a special micro-climate representing a natural means for treating respiratory affections.

    The height of the salt mine hall is of 70 meters and the circuit runs around the enormous pillar supporting the mine. There can be admired the basso-rilievo works depicting some of the most important figures in Romanian history. One can meditate here just like in an enormous cathedral. Inside the Salt Mine, the atmosphere is amazing, you can find a small history museum, a soccer field, and a children's playground. The place is also used for various sports events (athletic competitions and as a training ground for sports teams), a sanatorium for the elderly and the sick or as a scenery for the film industry.

    After visiting the Salt Mine, the tour continues to the Salt Mountain, one of nature’s monuments unique in the world, a national interest protected area. The Mountain covers the area of 20.000 sqm and created as a result of the works carried on inside the salt mountain.

    Responded 25 Jun 2019
    Dear Donna, Please, accept our apologies for not organising the tour. As we have informed you on the way to the salt mine are some traffic restrictions, which would greatly complicate and prolong the driving time and since you were not able to reschedule, we were forced to cancel the trip. We hope you have enjoyed your stay in Romania despite the cancellation. Kind regards,

    I took this Salt Mine Tour offered by Mr. Tripp during my vacation to Romania back in March. This Salt Mine (Slanic Prahova) is simply amazing! I could not believe my eyes that the entire place was made from salt. Photos do not do this place justice. You have to see it in person
