Itinerary

Unirea Mine in Slanic Prahova is the largest salt mine in Europe and it is located just 100 km north of Bucharest. The salt mine no longer operates to extract the mineral from the Earth, but it is open for visitors. It features a microclimate with natural air-conditioning and a constant temperature. There are 14 chambers with trapezoidal profiles, having a 10 meter opening to the ceiling and 32 meters to the ground, a height of 54 meters and a wall inclination angle of around 60 degrees.  The price of admission to the mine (approximately 5 Euros per person) is not included in the tour price and may be purchased on-site.

Next the tour will cross the picturesque hills that form one of Romania's most famous wine regions called Dealu Mare. You will stop at one of the local wineries to learn about the craft of winemaking, to taste excellent Romanian wines and to enjoy a traditional 3-course lunch (included in tour price).

The journey back to Bucharest will take you through the city of Ploiesti - the closest town to Bucharest. Expect to be back at your accommodation around 4:30 to 5:00 pm.
