We pick you up from your Oradea or Baile Felix hotel at 8-9 o'clock in the morning and we are going to Salt Mine Turda situated around 190 km away. Our trip lasts around 4 hours. Once there, we are visiting the mine( around 3 hours) - 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. The admission ticket costs 30 Ron and is to be paid by every tourist. At the end of the visit you may drink or eat something at the kiosks situated in front of the mine. The retour lasts other 4 hours. At evening we shall drop you off at your hotel .
