Turda Salt Mine

Turda Salt Mine | Accomodation in Turda

Turda Salt Mine Salt was first extracted here during the antiquity and the mine continuously produced table salt from the Middle Ages (the mine being first mentioned in 1075) to the early 20th century.

Much of the salt was extracted during the Habsburgs reign, some of the galleries that compose now the visitable part of the mines dating back to those times.

Since 1992, Salina Turda has been a halotherapy center and a popular tourist attraction.The salt mines facilities have been renovated in 2009.

Inside the salt mine the temperature remains constant at a 10–12 °C (50–54 °F) all the time, at any time of the year. Humidity in the air remains constant, too, at about 75-80%.
