Salt mine in Praid

In the eastern part of Transylvania, on Szekler’s Land there is a region- the only one- that was named after its mineral resources: the Szekler Salt-Region. Here, in this wonderful little region is situated the salt yard, one of the biggest places in Europe where salt can be found. The huge salt mass, which is 1.2 times 1.4 km in diameter, is slightly elliptic and it has its roots at an astonishing depth – 2.7 km.
