A secret is buried in Romania. For many years, decommissioned salt mines have been left abandoned, that was until a few creative people climbed down 400 feet into one of the mines and all they saw was potential.
Romania’s Salina Turda salt mine was once a great economic force, continuously producing table salt from the Middle Ages right up until 1932.
The mine is no longer active, but thanks to some imaginative investors, you can still visit the site.
It’s been transformed into an amusement park, complete with an underground lake where you can kayak.
The experience is kind of like discovering an alien civilization buried below the surface.
If kayaking’s not for you, there’s always ping pong…
The park is even home to a full-size Ferris wheel!
If that wasn’t enough, the park is also supposed to have lingering health benefits from the excess salt in the air.
