If you like to go under ground in this type of salt mine I advice to try also this salt mine which is now only for tourists, is same like Turda salt mine but is longer and not so high (tall)

Other than being underground in huge caverns there is little to recommend this site - it may be interesting for people with children as it is mostly a playground. The local craft market however has some interesting and reasonably priced items. Skip the mine and...More
