Bibendum
Salt extraction in Romania dates back to Roman times. A visit to the Slanic (meaning salt in Romanian) mine, Europe's largest, takes in long galleries 200m below ground. It ceased production in 1969, since it was no longer economically viable. The attractive residential town is now a pleasant spa resort renowned for its iodised air.

    Pros

    I've never visited a mine before and always thought that it's a closed space. After this visit I realized that a salt mine is a spectacular place where you can practice different sports (football, badminton, ping-pong, etc.) and most of all get a chance to use the proprieties of salt aerosols.

    Cons

    Everything still looked like the '80s.
