You Won't Regret Visiting This Abandoned Salt Mine (15 pics)

Posted in Random » Interesting   14 Mar 2016   / 5344 views

Salina Turda was a salt mine located in Romania. It was opened somewhere in the 17th century and closed in 1932. Sixty years later it was converted into an insane underground amusement park. Check it out.

 

From the outside, it's a cool building that's still pretty innocuous.

Some parts of the facility look like a regular mine...

But down below, things get kind of exciting.

Inside Salina Turda are a number of mines, rooms, and galleries.

Now a popular tourist destination, there's plenty to do down below.

Guests can even take boat rides through the space, which almost seems too cool to be true.

...while others look like something out of a sci-fi movie.

The deepest mine inside is the Terezia mine, which is about 394 feet deep.

The lighting inside the mine is what makes this place really space age.

Can you imagine spending an afternoon here?

Doesn't look abandoned to me, they found another use for it. It looks cool.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

I was about to mention that aswell. What the miners created in that mine is just amazing.
