The Salt Mine Turda (Salina Turda), Turda-Romania
Salina Turda, located in Turda, Romania, is home to an underground theme park that's nestled inside one of the oldest salt mines in the world.
The salt mine, which dates as far back as the 17th century, was used for everything from a cheese storage center to a bomb shelter in WWII after excavations stopped in 1932.
Today, it has been transformed into an incredible underground theme park. It has a Sci-Fi look too (even the Dark Knight director was considering shooting here).
When you visit, you'll head down about 400-feet (121 m) before reaching the submerged wonderland.
Once inside, you'll find an amphitheater, a bowling alley, an underground lake with paddle and row boats, and even a Ferris wheel. You'll also find a mini golf course and ping pong courts.
Salina Turda is open year-round.
