Ocna Sibiu, Salt Lakes and Healing Mud

Some friends who live in Romania took me to Ocna Sibiu. It's a collection of small lakes with high salt concentrations to swim (or float) in. They also have lakes with black mud that people rub on their bodies that supposedly helps aching joints. It's funny to see people totally covered in the black mud walking around the park. I believe the area used to be salt mines a long time ago. It costs about 20lei to get in. If you are near Sibiu, its definitely worth it to take a day and check it out. http://www.ocna-sibiu.ro/

Oh yea, they also have lots of beer gardens, which is always nice.
