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.

Hello, stairs are unavoidable in order to get to the elevator. If you enter through the old entrance (Strada Salinelor), you'll have 43 steps on the stairs, and about 720 meters of walking through a gallery. If you enter through the new entrance (Aleea Durgau) you'll have 150 steps on stairs and about 250 meters of walking through the gallery. Sorry our answer comes so late.

This tour is operated from Cluj. Salina Turda is about 425 km away from Bucharest. If you are in Bucharest and plan to visit the salt mine, we can also pick you up there, but keep in mind the driving would take some 8 to 10 hours, depending on the traffic. That's why we would suggest a 2 or 3 days long trip from Bucharest to Salina Turda / Cluj, so that to discover a little bit more of the country, including some of the most beautiful medieval cities of Transylvania, UNESCO enlisted fortified churches, charming villages or some of the most astonishing Byzantine style churches in Romania.
