There are a lot of amazing places on our beautiful blue planet. So many, in fact, that I have a hard time imagining anyone being able to visit all of them during their entire lifetime. Some places are of course more epic than others, but they all have one thing in common, they are all worth visiting. One such place is an abandoned salt mine from 1932, which has now been converted into one of the world’s most epic amusement park complexes.
We see it more and more, mines being converted into everything from hotels to amusement parks. If anything, that is what we should be doing as we’re constantly creating dangerously large holes in our beautiful planet. This salt mine is 120 meters deep and is a royal sight for anyone that has the opportunity to take a look at it from above as well as from within. The things they have managed to do in this mine are nothing less than on the edge of brilliant.
Looking down into the deep hole, you will be met by a sight that rivals that of a science fiction movie. As a matter of fact, it looks like a space base at the bottom with all the lights that have been used to illuminate the abandoned mine. It is epic in every way and that is just the view from the top. Drop down to the bottom in the elevator and you will enter into an amusement park (which is really a recreational park) that can only be described as a Wally World within our own world.
There is literally everything in this deep mine from a Ferris wheel to a football playground, sports halls and an amphitheater. There is even room for a boat ride if you so crave one on the underground lake. I do not know how deep the water is in this lake and I would not want to find out either, but the whole place looks nothing but enchanting and magical when you look at it from all angles. So where is this place located? This abandoned salt mine is named Salina Turda and it is located in Romania – Salina Turda website.
