Two important objectives allows us to have an impression about the grandeur of the nature and about the human power of using natural resources. We’ll go down in the depth of the Earth to see Turda Salt Mine and later  we’ll look for the fly of the Golden Eagle in Turda Gorges.


 - Turda Salt Mine.Turda's salt deposit has been known and exploited by ancient times, but it was systematic exploited during the Roman conquest in Dacia. The salt was exploited in rooms of 17-34m depth and 10-12m width, disposed one near the other an separated by a safety consolidation. This system ensured a massive extraction of the salt, but it worked only in those areas where the salt was exploited near the surface.
