Underground wonders and lunar-like landscapes

Set off from Bucharest on a day trip with a private guide, offering insightful narration throughout the journey. Your first destination is the Slanic Salt Mine, a place whose history goes all the way back to 1685. 400 meters down, a constant temperature of around 12 degree Celsius offers respite from hot summer days, making the place a favorite among locals and tourists alike. Next, witness the bizarre beauty of the small mud volcanoes, sporting a moon-like terrain formed by a unique combination of water and natural gases. They are relatively rare compared to traditional magma volcanoes, thus becoming a unique experience not to be missed.

Artistic treasures amidst natural beauty

The day concludes with a visit to the Ciolanu Monastery, located in a peaceful meadow and surrounded by forests. It is known for housing icons painted by Gheorghe Tattarescu, as well as several religious artifacts. As your day of natural phenomena and cultural insight concludes, you'll be comfortably transported back to your hotel in Bucharest.
