Unirea Salt Mine
Slănic mine is an old salt mine, located in Slănic, Prahova County, Romania, just 100 km north of Bucharest.

The salt mine is closed for extraction purposes, but is open for visitors, featuring a microclimate with natural air-conditioning and constant temperature and atmospheric pressure throughout the year.

It is made up of two levels, named Unirea and Mihai. Many of the visitors come for its supposed healing effects due to the purity of the air.

Throughout the mine you will find various types of equipment for recreational activity such as playground equipment and some ping-pong tables.

One area is sectioned off and is being used for medical patients with lung cancer to come and rest. The main elevator shaft is unique in that it has no metallic parts due to rust.

Vulcanii Noroiosi (Muddy Volcanoes)
The Muddy Volcanoes in Buzau county are not the volcanoes you would expect. They're not the big, real volcanoes that scare off people and clog the European airspace with volcanic ash. Not by far.

But they're a pretty amazing place, hidden somewhere in the Buzau mountains.

The Muddy Volcanoes were formed from the gas which comes from 30,000 meters underground.

The gas goes through a clay sector, then through the underground water. So the gas pushes the water and the clay to the surface (which by that time become mud), creating small cones which resemble the shape of a volcano.
