Scenes From Underground: Alan Taylor

One of the most important salt mines in Transylvania, Salina Turda has been known since ancient times, but was put into operation for underground mining work during the Roman period. The salt mine was mentioned in official documents dating from the middle of the 13th century, when the mine was offered to the Transylvanian Catholic Church leaders.
