Turda Salt Mine (Salina Turda) Tours

Turda Salt Mine (Salina Turda)
Rarely does a mineral mine top the list of national attractions, but thanks to well-preserved machinery and spa-like features, the Turda Salt Mine has become a major destination for travelers to Romania. Visitors can venture into the mine’s depths and learn about the rich history of extraction that has kept a community afloat, then travel to Durgau Lakes, which formed mineralized salt on old mining sites. This picturesque spot offers visitors the perfect place to sunbathe, unwind and enjoy scenic Romanian landscapes. 

Turda Salt Mine is also home to an impressive (and unexpected) spa complete with fitness center, Jacuzzi and saunas. The didactical swimming pool provides an alternative to the Durgau Lakes for visitors who prefer to log laps indoors. Travelers can also catch one of the popular shows at the amphitheater located on site, ride the massive Big Wheel Ferris wheel for spectacular views, or hop aboard one of the Turda Salt Mine boats for a memorable underground lake tour. 

Practical Info

The salt mine is open Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and costs 15 lei for adults and 8 lei for children. English, French, German and Hungarian speaking guides are available for groups of 20 or more upon request.
Address: Strada Frăgărişte, Turda, Romania
