Short Description:

Slanic Salt Mine and the Muddy Volcanoes Tour is designed for those interested to see unique attractions in Romania and enjoy the typical countryside of our country. In only one day, you will visit Europe’s largest salt mine, you will enjoy a short visit at a picturesque wine cellar and try the Romanian traditional dishes, and in the second part of the day, you will visit another unique place, the natural reserve of the Muddy Volcanoes.


In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel and head to Slanic Prahova, a very popular and important spa and climatic resort in Romania. The highlight of this resort is by far the old salt mine, the largest one in the whole Europe. Since 1970 the old mine is closed for extraction, but it is open for visitors. It features a microclimate with natural ventilation, a constant temperature and atmospheric pressure throughout the year, no matter the season. The mine is formed of 14 chambers with trapezoidal profiles with a total surface of 90.000 sqm, which is the approximate equivalent of 22 football fields. Explore the mine and the Salt Museum and then continue your journey to a picturesque wine cellar.

You are about to enter one of the most popular wine areas of Romania and each town and village you will cross, is popular for wine making. You will stop at only one where you will enjoy a short session of wine tasting, visit the wine cellars with the wine barrels and have lunch.

In the afternoon head to Buzau county to visit the unique reserve of the Muddy Volcanoes. They stand for one of the most interesting mixed reserve geological and botanical in Romania. Protected since 1924, the mud volcanoes offer a spectacular view to visitors that have the feeling of traveling to a selenar location. The volcanoes were formed by the gas coming from around 30,000 meters underground. The gas goes up through a clay sector, then through the underground water sector. The gas pushes the water at the surface together with the clay (mud), creating small cones which resemble the shape of a volcano.

In the evening, prepare to “land” back to Earth and head to Bucharest where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
