If you want to visit a special place, Salina is perfect! It is an ancient salt mine, plenty of activities for children! There is even a promenade in boats (we did it)! Only bad point: avoid going there on week ends, the site is full!

We did not know much about this place so had little expectations.Overall it is a good place that offers new experiences to both adults and children alike. Be it the underground lake and boat experience or the echo chamber everthing is quite interesting.

The combination of old and new is spectacular. Futuristic design creates the impression that you are living together in the past and the future

Based on other Tripadvisor reviews, we had high expectations. They weren't completely fulfilled. The underground space is quite impressive and has a very nice temperature. Bring a sweater/jacket! Inside there's a lot of fun activities but all at an extra charge (5-20 RON, depending on...More

Absolutely breathtaking place! Suitable for any visitors. Impresive size of old chambers and great concept of this very special leisure center. I was really fascinated!

The Salt Mine is a gem, but as others have said, if you do not plan to spend some time in Cluj as well (although you should, if you can), the trip may be a bit of a stretch. Public transportation is not among the best things... More
