Early in the morning, your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Brasov. After a 170 kilometers drive you will reach Praid, in Harghita county. Here, you will descend by bus deep into the underground salt deposit and then take a walking tour of the impressive salt mine. There are 15.6 degrees Celsius inside, so remember to dress adequately.
You will have time to wander around the huge salt galleries. Besides admiring the 20 million years old salt layers, inside you can play pool or table tennis, watch movies, enjoy an underground adventure park or just relax and breathe the therapeutic salty air.
After your visit to the Salt Mine, you will go to Bisericani. There you will climb inside the ”Heart of Jesus”, the biggest statue of Jesus in Eastern Europe. The 22 meters (72 ft) tall metal structure is situated on top of Gordon hill. From the top of the monument, you can see a beautiful panorama of the surrounding area.
On your way back to Brasov, you can visit the Racoș Geological Complex: the Emerald Lake, the Basalt Columns and the fascinating volcanic canyon.
