A full-day tour of Cluj-Napoca and its surroundings, including visits to the Turda Salt Mine and the Alba Carolina fortress.

Duration: 8 hours
    Available in
  • English,
  • German


  • Visit the 18th-century Alba Carolina fortress
  • Experience the magical Turda Salt Mine


You’ll meet your guide in the morning and head to the fortress city of Alba Iulia in the heart of Transylvania. Its Roman influences will take you centuries back in time. Over the years it was also influenced by the Germans and the Hungarians, transforming it into a place of high cultural diversity.

Different architectural styles will delight your eyes: baroque and Romanesque churches, Roman citadels and even a Babylonian building. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the 18th-century Alba Carolina fortress. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy lunch in medieval surrounds.

Next on your journey is the Transylvanian Turda Salt Mine. The 100-metre galleries open into a huge room carved out of salt, which reaches 90 metres high. In the middle of it you can take a boat ride on the salt lake.

If you’re seeking spectacular scenes to capture with your camera, Turda is the place to visit. A glass elevator provides an astonishing view of the mine. The temperature is constant at 10–12 degrees Celsius all year long, and the salty air has proven therapeutic properties.

my amazing day trip from Cluj!
I was in Cluj for a day and I didn't expect to see so many things in just a day. In the morning the guide came at the hotel and we went to Turda saltmine were there are some spectacular sights. the guide provided interesting information about the things we saw. From there we went to Rimetea village where we had a delicious lunch with specifical natural products and goodies. In the afternoon we went to Alba Iulia city were we visited the old fortress and in the evening we came back to Cluj Napoca. I was both fun and interesting, due to Rolandia that provided us with the best services.
