Postcards from Romania
The Salt Mountains at Slanic
Slanic Slanic
The Salt Mountains, product of the salt mining which has taken place in the area since 1532, stands between two lakes in which one can swim in summer. The former Salt Chancellery built in 1800, is housing now the Museum of the salt industry. In the proximity  the Unirea mine displays scenes from Romanian history carved in salt. Slanic, also named Slanic Prahova, is 11km west of Valenii de Munte.
