Salina Turda is a salt mine situated in the city of Turda, Cluj County, in the region of Transylvania, Romania. Salt was first extracted here during the antiquity and the mine continuously produced table salt from the Middle Ages (it was first mentioned in a document in 1075) to the early 20th century (1932).
Since 1992, Salina Turda has been a halo-therapy center and a popular tourist attraction. Moreover, it is an open history museum for anyone willing to connect the salt extraction with the events that occurred during Roman occupation in Dacia. The mine had a significant economic function in the development of the city of Turda. The visitors can also observe the excellent condition of the mining compartments, and the equipment used for transporting the salt.
