Cluj & Turda Salt Mine
The one word to describe the Turda Salt Mine would be massive. It is often referred to as one of the "Coolest Places Underground". After paying the $7 entrance fee, you enter a tunnel carved out of rock approximately 6'w x 8'h that extends for what appears to be forever. When people describe an after death experience and the light at the end of a large tunnel, I think that would be the best way to picture the Turda tunnel. At the one of the corridors there is an entrance to an open pit that is enormous. Leslie and I ascended and descended the 15 stories of narrow steep old wooden stairs that lead you from the viewing gallery at the top to the base of the shaft where there is a lake with of course a "tacky tourist area"! It wouldn't be a famous tourist attraction without a bowling alley, billiard table, ping pong and an opportunity to get your photo take with Mickey & Minnie Mouse. What they have to do with the attraction is beyond me. Other than that, it was definitely worth the price of admission. There were plenty of people at the site but other than the stairs and elevators that brought you up and down the mine shaft, crowd control was not a problem.

I have always been a straight shooter and a go getter. Many have said Leslie must be a saint to have put up with me for over 40 years. We have been business partners since the day we got married and each played an intrigal roll in our business success. There is nothing more important to us than our Family & Friends. Our love of people and travel has allowed us to develop amazing friendships around the world.
