Salina Turda | Transylvania, Romania

Salina Turda is a centuries-old salt mine in Romania that has been converted into an underground tourist attraction complete with rides, a museum, and health spa. Visitors to the mine can go boating on an underground lake, attend a concert in a 180-seat amphitheater, and ride a carousel deep within a salt cavern. [ x ]

Anna stood at the center of the strange circle of rock and dust and looked about her, her eyes half-lidded.

"…It looks natural. It looks … well, I imagine that from above it would look like a giant drop of water had fallen from the sky."

"Or that sieve of mine." He narrowed his eyes and crouched a moment, studying the pattern of stones by his feet, then shook his head again.

"Vibrations," he said quietly. "Vibrations deep in the earth."
