Video: Star Wars Set or Salt Mine?

June 19, 2013

Yesterday, I took a nice little day trip from Cluj-Napoca, Romania to the Turda Salt Mine (Salinas Turda in Romania). Who gives a shit about salt and old tunnels? That’s what I thought too, but I was urged by many locals to check it out. Watch the video to see why it’s so cool.

(Momism alert). Yikes! I assume you checked on line to make sure there is no seismic activity in that area. Was there any explanatory material you could read in English to explain the history of that place? It looks like it could have been one of Ceaușescu’s Gulags.

You know, I was thinking about that actually when I was in there, but it would probably be the safest place to be in an Earthquake? Maybe not…
