Last time we've been so close to the Slanic Prahova salt mountain was in 2006. What a difference! Back then we could actually get near, touch and taste (!) it. But now, there is a fence and a warning. This is thou not a bad thing - my oppinion is that it should be protected from the hordes of careless tourists, and also from the rain. Oh, well... we still have a long way to go, till we understand that we should protect our natural treasures. But I am afraid that the salt mountain is melted by then...This is now.
