My place to dream :Turda Salt Mines

In september , my family and another family went to another city,close to Cluj,to visit the Salt Mines.

Here are some informations : Turda's salt deposit has been known and exploited by ancient times, but it was put into systematic operation of the deposit, by underground mining work, during the Roman conquest in Dacia.The salt was exploited in rooms of 17-34m (56-112 feet) depth and 10-12m (33-39 feet) width, disposed one near the other an separated by a safety consolidation. This system ensured a massive extraction of the salt, but it worked only in those areas where the salt was exploited near the surface. Salt was continuously extracted during the 6 and 9 century, along with other very useful minerals.Towards the end of the 17 century and the beginning of the 18 century, the mining in Transilvania revigorates due to some initiatives of the Royal Court in Viena meant to encourage the economy of the province.

It's a lovely place,so quite and so...divine.Kids are playing there and a basket court is being built. It's umbelieveble how many thinks the nature can do!

So,here are some photos .
