The beautiful Salina Turda

Turda (25 Oct 2015) — posted on 18 Sep 2016

In Turda they turned a used salt mine into a spectacular tourist attraction. The mines were first mentioned in the Middle Ages and salt was being mined until 1932. The mines are now used for halotherapy, an alternative treatment for asthma, and as a tourist attraction.

See the pictures below. It was definitely worth spending my morning there before hitchhiking further to the small city of Sighișoara.
