Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in Brasov and drive to the village of Praid. Here, descend deep into the underground salt deposit before enjoying a walking tour of the impressive salt mine. Take some time to admire the huge salt galleries, play pool or table tennis, watch movies, visit an underground adventure park or just relax and breathe in the therapeutic salty air. After returning to the surface, head to the village of Bisericani, where you will climb inside the ”Heart of Jesus”, the biggest statue of Jesus in Eastern Europe. The 22-meter (72 ft) tall metal structure is situated on top of Gordon Hill and can be climbed thanks to an interior ladder that will take you to Jesus' head, where you can see a beautiful panorama of the surrounding area. If there is time, on your way back to Brasov, visit the Racoș Geological Complex: the Emerald Lake, the Basalt Columns and the fascinating volcanic canyon. Get dropped off back at your hotel in Brasov at the end of the day.
