We will leave behind Sighisoara, heading to the city of Turda to visit the salt mine. Turda Salt Mine is one of the oldest salt mines in the world. It was dug during medieval times for salt exploitation, with the first documented reference of the mine dating all the way back to 1271. The mine consists of an assembly of beautiful operating rooms and mine galleries, including The Iosif mine: famous for having a powerful sound echo, it can be visited through balconies carved in salt, Crivac room: where visitors can see a rudimentary installation used for lifting salt rocks on the surface originally installed here in 1864, Terezia mine: featuring halls of impressive measurements: 90 m height and 87 m in diameter, Rudolph mine: which marks the last place where salt was exploited in Turda, Gizela mine: that currently serves solely the work of health treatment. The underground gallery of the mine is a geological reserve, and tourists have no access to this area. After the salt mine visit, you’ll set off to the city of Alba Iulia. It has a long history, dating back to the time of the Dacian tribe who built here the first fortress. The area was conquered by the Romans in 106 who built a fort known as Apulum. The present shape dates back to the first part of the 18th century when the Hapsburgs built one of the best Vauban citadels in this area. Furthermore, Alba Iulia, lived some of the greatest events of the Romanian history, it is the place where the agreement was signed to unify Transylvania with Romania on 1st December 1918, that date became the National Day of Romania and four years later King Ferdinand and Queen Maria were crowned at the Orthodox Cathedral.
