Transylvanian spa & history in Sovata. Spa and history go well together like rice and curry, lemonade and honey, croissant and coffee. The salty healing waters gave Sovata the “baby-maker” moniker as they treat gynecological and fertility medical issues. Facts and legend combined, Romanians have a popular folk song with the chorus line: “Mother, take me to Sovata so that I can meet my father.” Or maybe is just something in the water. The villages around Sovata are well known for their tight knit Hungarian communities and pottery skills.
In the morning
Stop at: Praid salt mine
The largest underground salt mine in Romania and one of the largest in Europe, the Praid salt mine is visited by over 200 000 tourists every year for its curative respiratory healing salty air. From two months old to 85 grandpas they want and need the salty air in their lungs for a minimum of 4 hours.
The Romans may have discovered it first, but by mid XVIII century salt was being dig up in Praid at big scale with a few perks for the Hungarian local population, packed in buffalo skins and pulled to the surface by a “extraction machinery” operated by horse power.
