Tour description

Departure from Cluj at 8:30. Your day will begin with a fabulous underground voyage into the wombs of the ancient salt mine from Turda*. Used as an antiaircraft shelter during WWII, as cheese ripening center during the communist period and finally upgraded to an amusement park, the salt mine from Turda still preserves thousands of chisel and hammer marks, left by the miners once working here as their ‘salt signature’. Lunch in a restaurant on the way. Continue for Hateg region.
In Hunedoara we will discover the Hunyad Castle (also known as Corvin Castle) which, as it’s name already says it, belonged to the Hunyad family, one of the most famous family member being King Mathia Hunyadi. Here, you’ll have the chance to hear lots of legends and stories about the royal family, it’s origin, medieval fighting techniques and other interesting information.
Back to Cluj in late afternoon.
