All about the trip
This trip is your chance to discover two extraordinary places in Europe: Slanic Prahova Salt Mine and The Salt Museum. Slanic Prahova is an all-season spa resort, famous for its curative mineral waters, but its main attraction is the spectacular Salt Mine, one of the biggest in Europe and famous for its healing effects. The temperature is constant all year round at 12 degrees C, humidity at 50%, the air composition is rich in sodium ions, at atmospheric pressure of 18-20 mm Mercury column, higher than that on the surface of the ground; the lack of allergenic agents creates a special micro-climate representing a natural means for treating respiratory affections.
The height of the salt mine hall is 70 meters and the circuit runs around the enormous pillar supporting the mine. There can be admired the basso-rilievo works depicting some of the most important figures in Romanian history. One can meditate here just like in an enormous cathedral. Inside the Salt Mine, the atmosphere is amazing, you can 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 a training ground for sports teams), a 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.Slănic mine Wikipedia
