Guess What This Is And Where It Is? You Will Never Guess! This Is Amazing

Now this is incredible; this is Salina Turda, an old salt mine situated in the town of Turda in Romania.

Salt was extracted from this mine and produced table salt from the Middle Ages right up to 1932 when the mine was closed.

It was used as a bomb shelter during World War II and has also been used to store cheese.

In 1992 the mine was re-opened but this time as a tourist attraction.

A museum and a mini amusement park was built inside the mine.

It includes bowling lanes, an amphitheatre, mini golf, a ferris wheel, spa and a mini lake with boats.

It looks to be a scene from a very surreal Science Fiction film. It would make a good film set for sure.

One of the prominent features of this mine is the huge panoramic wheel which allows tourists to see the incredible stalagmites that have formed over the 1000 year history of the mine.
