    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Salina Turda, Aleea Durgaului 7, Turda 401200 Romania

    You will descend into the underground where you'll completely be surrounded by salt. Walk on a man-made gallery, visit three mining chambers, learn about mining techniques and local urban legends and, nevertheless, take a boat or a Ferris-wheel ride. The visit of the mine involves climbing and descending some stairs. In total there about steps to go up and down, but most of them can be avoided by taking two different elevators.
