Viziteaza Romania! II

Salina Turda

Dupa o zi lunga, in care am vizitat multe locuri interesante (vezi aici), am ajuns in Cluj-Napoca si am cautat o cazare.  Oriunde sunam ne loveam de acelasi raspuns: toate camerele sunt ocupate. Incepeam sa cred ca o sa dormim in masina, Desigur puteam ramane oricand la prietenii nostri din Cluj, dar nu voiam sa ii deranjam.  Am gasit o cazare foarte draguta la Gala hotel. Angajatii foarte amabili si camerele curate.

After a long day, in which we visited many interesting places (see here), we arrived in Cluj-Napoca and we searched for accommodation. Everywhere we call on the phone, we hit the same answer: all the rooms are busy. I was starting to think that we will sleep in the car. Of course we could always stay at our friends in Cluj, but I did not want to bother them. I found a very nice accommodation at the Gala Hotel. Very friendly staff and clean rooms.

 

 

Trecut de miezul noptii, ne-am dus sa mancam la un restaurant deschis non stop, Casa Vikingilor. Am mancat foarte bine iar preturile sunt convenabile. Eu mi-am comandat ceafa vikingului si cartofi taranesti. A fost absolut delicios, iar daca ma voi intoarce la Cluj-Napoca, cu siguranta ma voi opri aici sa imi mai comand o data.

Past midnight, we went to eat at a non-stop restaurant, the Viking House. We ate very well and the prices are convenient. I ordered Viking’s steack and peasant potatoes. It was absolutely delicious, and if I go back to Cluj-Napoca, I will definitely stop here to order again.

 

 

Dupa o masa copioasa ne-am intors la hotel si ne-am culcat. Ne-am trezit, am facut repede un dus si ne-am urcat in masina. Turda este destul de aproape si ne-am dus sa vizitam salina.

Salina Turda este inscrisa pe lista monumentelor istorice din judetul Cluj, elaborata de Ministerul Culturii si Patrimoniului National din Romania in anul 2010. Dovezi arheologice sigure ale exploatarii sarii la Durgau-Turda exista din perioada preromana (50 î.C.-106 d.C.).  Exploatarea sarii din Salina Turda a fost sistata definitiv în anul 1932, din cauza dotarii tehnice primitive, a randamentului scazut si a concurentei altor saline ardelene.

In anul 1932 existau la Salina Turda urmatoarele mine de sare (de la sud spre nord):
– mina Iosif (1740-1900)
– mina Rudolf (1864-1932)
– mina Terezia (1690-1880)
– mina Ghizela (1857-1932)
– mina Anton (inceputul sec.XVIII-1862).

In anul 1992 Salina Turda s-a redeschis in scop turistic si curativ.  Salina  detine in prezent sali de tratament, un amfiteatru, sali de sport, dar principala atractie este „roata panoramica”, de unde se pot admira stalactitele din sare. Intre 2012 – 2014 a fost executat un tunel de legatura intre mina Terezia si mina Iosif, lung de 50 m, cu scopul de a include in circuitul turistic si mina Iosif, nedeschisa pana acum accesului public.  Daca alegi sa vizitezi Salina Turda de un lucru poti fi sigur. Aici nu te vei plictisi. Poti face o plimbare cu barca, juca minigolf, tenis de masa, biliard sau bowling, te poti da in carusel sau te poti juca pe terenul de sport handbal, tenis, etc. Trebuie sa mergi neaparat in sala ecourilor.

Program de intrare: luni-duminica  9.00-18.00

Tarife bilete intrare: Adulti: 30 lei/persoana;

Copii, elevi, studenti: 15 lei/persoana;

Pensionari: 15 lei/persoana.

 

After a nice meal we went back to the hotel and slept. We woke up, we quickly took a shower and got into the car. Turda is quite close and we went to visit the salt mine.

Turda Saltern is listed on the list of historical monuments in Cluj County, elaborated by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in Romania in 2010. The archaeological evidence of salt mining in Durgau-Turda existed from the pre-Roman period (50 BC-106 AD). Salt exploatation from Turda Saltern was permanently shut down in 1932 due to the primitive technical endowment, low yield and competition of other Transylvanian Saltern.

In 1932 there were the following salt mines (from south to north) at Turda Saltern:
– Iosif mine (1740-1900)
– Rudolf mine (1864-1932)
– Terezia mine (1690-1880)
– Ghizela mine (1857-1932)
– Anton mine (early 18th-1862).

In 1992 Turda  Saltern reopened for tourism and curative purposes. Saltern currently has treatment rooms, an amphitheater, sports halls, but the main attraction is the “panoramic wheel”, where you can admire the salt stalactites. Between 2012 and 2014, a tunnel was connected between the Terezia mine and the Iosif mine, 50 m long, in order to include the last one in the touristic circuit, which has not been opened. If you choose to visit Turda Saltern by one thing you can be sure. Here you will not get bored. You can take a boat ride, play minigolf, table tennis, billiards or bowling, you can take a ride with the carousel or play  handball, tennis, etc. on the sport ground. You also shoud go to the echo hall.

Entrance ticket: Adults: 30 lei / person;

                           Children, pupils, students: 15 lei / person;

                           Retired: 15 lei / person.

 

Si daca tot ai ajuns in Turda, eu iti propun sa vizitezi si Castrul roman Potaissa al Legiunii a V-a Macedonica. Este cel mai important monument istorico-arheologic din orasul Turda.  Inceperea conflictelor marcomanice au determinat Roma sa trimita in jurul anului 168 Legiunea a V-a Macedonica din Moesia, de la Troesmis, la Potaissa pentru a intari defensiva nord-vestica a Daciei romane. Leagiunea a construit aici cel mai mare castru cu functionare indelungata din aceasta provincie romana.

And if you have arrived in Turda, I propose you to visit the Roman Potaissa Castrum of the 5th Legion of Macedonia. It is the most important historical and archaeological monument in the city of Turda. The beginning of the Marcoman conflicts led Rome to send around the year 168 the Legion V Macedonian of Moesia, Troesmis, Potaissa to strengthen the north-western defensive of Roman Dacia. The resort built here the largest long-standing camp in this Roman province.
