Visiting the moon: Salt Mine in Turda
In Turda, not far from Cluj-Napoca we visited Salt Mine. Knowing just that it’s big and old – we came downstairs, with Hanna packed in warm clothes. And that was the most surrealistic surprise ever! In the hole after the the bell.shaped salt mine (opened in 1271!) there is an amazing modern playing ground.
The mine was open from 13th century until 1932 and then they were storing cheese in there. Last year they made a lifting and almost no sign (unfortunately) of old years is visible. BUT… you can rent a boat there, play mini-golf, bowling or basketball… While breathing with a healthy air and listening to old babushkas singing songs.
And one of babushkas gave us a bottle of mineral water when we left the mine. Just. As a present.
