Full description
Discover two extraordinary places in Europe: Slanic Prahova Salt Mine and The Salt Mountain. First, visit the Slanic Prahova, an all-season spa resort, famous for its curative mineral waters and its spectacular Salt Mine, one of the biggest in Europe and famous for its healing effects. The salt mine hall stands at 70 meters tall and the circuit runs around the enormous pillar supporting the mine. There, admire the basso-rilievo works depicting some of the most important figures in Romanian history.  Inside the Salt Mine, you will find a small history museum, a soccer field and a children's playground. The place is also used for various sports events (athletic competitions and as training ground for sport teams), as sanatorium for the elderly and the sick or as a scenery for the film industry. After visiting the Salt Mine, the tour continues to the Salt Museum, where you can find out about the history of salt exploitation and it's biological importance.

A fantastic tour. This tour won’t disappoint! We had a fantastic tour guide, Eugen, who was very knowledgeable. He gave us lots of historical and cultural information and was more than happy to answer questions. We enjoyed the stop at the museum of Prahova with a virtual tour of the salt mine. He also offered recommendations of other things to do and to see, and places to go during the tour. Definitely a must when visiting Bucharest and want to spend a day outside the bustling city.

We were four friends and we think it was a super cool experience. And I think everyone should experience it, but remember warm clothes. Ps we had a power outage for 30 min while we were down in the mine In complete darkness that didn't make it any less exciting

Nice activity, an average level of English is required, our guide also spoke French, the place as such is impressive but quite short to visit I would say 2 hours maximum with the visit of the small museum, I recommend it if you spend 5-6 days in Bucharest, otherwise there is more interesting to see in historical terms.
