The Old Salt Mine That Is A Futuristic Theme Park

Hundreds of feet below the surface of Transylvania, Romania lies a huge subterranean cavern. Once the site of a salt mine, this vast space is Salina Turda, a massive expanse boasting a number of attractions. Tourists enter the futuristic-looking space via a centuries-old vertical shaft. And what they find includes mini golf, basketball, a 100-person amphitheater, ping pong, a museum about the history of salt mining, a salt lake with an island made of salt, and more.
