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.
