This is a private tour to the largest salt mine in Romania, which is Slanic Prahova.
We take you from your hotel and we drive for an hour and a half to the Salt Mine.
Here we will enter under the ground (200 meters difference in level).
We will see the largest salt deposit in Romania that was mined in the 19th century.
This place is highly recommended for those who have respiratory problems. The air in the mine helps to cure some lung diseases.
Inside you will find the biggest planetarium in Romania, with a dome with a diameter at 16 meters and laser projection system (4k) of 24.000 lumens.

Vulcanii Noroiosi (Muddy Volcanoes)
Muddy Vulcanoes is a geological and botanical reservation located in Buzău County in Romania.
Its most spectacular feature is the mud volcanoes, small volcano-shaped structures typically a few metres high caused by the eruption of mud and natural gases.
As the gases erupt from 3000 metres deep towards the surface, through the underground layers of clayand water, they push up underground salty water and mud, so that they overflow through the mouths of the volcanoes, while the gas emerges as bubbles. The mud dries off at the surface, creating a relatively solid conical structure resembling a real volcano. The mud expelled by them is cold, as it comes from inside the Earth's continental crust layers, and not from the mantle.
