We went on a quiet day (Tuesday, middle of winter) so we could paddle on the salty lake by ourselves and play a few games of ping pong. How often do you get to do that in a disused salt mine? Once (here, at Turda)....More

I am sorry, I don't know. It turned out that they were having a special for old people and I got in free. It was one day a month or something and we just happened to hit it.
