Full description
Start the day at the Slanic Salt Mine. This salt mine, located in a wonderful environment was opened for the first time in 1938. In order to reach it, you’ll go 400 meters down. The microclimate inside makes it a favorite spot for both locals and travelers — there’s a constant temperature inside of never more than 54 degrees Fahrenheit (12 degrees Celsius) which is much preferred in a hot summer.  Your next stop will be a unique and odd place: the mud volcanoes. These small volcanoes stand just a few meters above ground and they exist because of a unique combination of water and natural gases creating a moon-like terrain. Next, visit Ciolanu Monastery, well-known for its late 19th-century icons painted by famous artist Gheorghe Tătărescu.

Fue una excursión aue merece mucho la pena. Vlad el guía nos dio muy buenas explicaciones. Vimos paisajes que contrastan mucho con la naturaleza de Rumanía como los volcanes de barro. Las minas eran chulísimas pero eché en faltan que hicieran un tour dentro de la mina. Teníamos Wifi dentro del coche y comimos muy bien en el restaurante que nos llevó el guía. Un día genial!
