Stop At: Salina Turda, Aleea Durgaului 7, Turda 401200 Romania

Turda was once the most important economic centre in this region. Salt, also known as ‘white gold’, has been extracted from the Turda salt mine since the Roman Age. This mine, dating from the 17th century, was a decisive factor in the development of this town from Roman times until today and is now a veritable history museum of salt mining.

We spend the afternoon in the Transylvanian Western Carpathian mountains in the village of Rimetea.
