History


Description

Troilus mine is a working salt mine with 8 levels. As far as I know there is no possibility to visit the mine, but one level of the mine is used for speleotherapy.

A huge chamber with a 15m high ceiling, supported by large pilars of salt, is used for this purpose. The patients are transported by bus into the mina, 1.75km through a huge tunnel, large enough for coaches. Then they have to walk 200m more into the chamber.
