About Salt Mine of Cacica

Mine Cacica is a salt mine located in village Cacica, Suceava district, Romania.

The entrance to the mine is made on fir stairs, 200 years old, mineralized by brine, who penetrated the wood. Temperature is about -15 degrees Celsius.

In 1989, archaeological finds have confirmed that Cacica  was one of the oldest salt mines recrystallized from brine (boiling and evaporation) in Europe, dating back from the early Neolithic. In the area there are now several salt springs.

The mine was manually dug by workers and technicians from various provinces of the Habsurgic Empire.
