What To Expect

Salina Turda
The Turda salt mine was included in an international circuit of European salt mines from the UNESCO patrimony.

The salt mine has been getting international media coverage as well. It was featured in Architectural Digest in 2016 as an example of a mine conversion into an underground amusement park. The salt mine was also featured on Business Insider in 2015, as “an incredible amusement park” and on CNN, which presented “stunning views” from the park. The underground site had another moment of international fame when Jared Leto, the lead singer of the 30 Seconds to Mars group, posted a link on Twitter about it.

The Turda salt mine is unique in the world for its cone-shaped excavation areas, which were customary at the beginning of the salt extraction activities, and also has trapeze shaped ones. The mine was opened during the Middle Ages, and it was first mentioned in a 1271 document issued by the Hungarian chancellery. From 1950 up until 1992, when the salt mine was re-opened as a tourist site, the first 500 meters of the Franz Josef transport gallery served as storage space for cheeses.
