6. Salina Turda

Today, the Turda Salt Mine is a real museum of the history of salt mining.

The excellent state of preservation of the mining works and of the equipment used for salt transport, together with the care with which the preparation works of the salt mine were carried out to become a tourist objective, made history and legend intertwine harmoniously here.

The growing number of tourists, arriving from the most distant geographical areas to visit the salt mine are a confirmation of the tourist and historical value.
