Slanic Prahova is a spa resort for all seasons, famous for its healing mineral waters. Unirea Salt Mine is the main attraction of the resort, one of the largest in Europe and famous for its healing effects.

The temperature inside the salt mine is constant all year round, at 12 degrees C, the radioactivity is at the detection limit, the atmospheric pressure is 18 mmHg higher than that of the surface, and the concentration of natural salt aerosols, the lack of allergenic agents create a special micro-climate that is a natural way of treating respiratory diseases.

Inside the Salt Mine, the atmosphere is amazing, one can find a small History Museum, a football field and a children's playground. The place is also used for various sporting events (athletic competitions and as a training field for sports teams), a sanatorium for the elderly and sick or as a place for contemplation and meditation. The Salt Museum is the place where you can learn about the history of salt exploitation and its biological importance.
