Salt mines and spas

Radio Romania International's latest contest offers a prize of ten days for two at a Romanian salt mine spa in May 2013.

The contest closes at the end of February. Win and you could find yourself exploring Slanic Prahova in Prahova County, Targu Ocna in Bacau County, Praid in Harghita County and Turda in Cluj County. I would probably be as interested in a runners-up or consolation prize, due to the station’s rules that always state you have to fund your journey to and from Romania. The questions may look tricky but if you check Radio Romania International’s social media presence and tune in as well, you will be able to give a good account of yourself

1. For how long can Romania cover its salt consumption from domestic reserves?
2. Name at least three salt mine spas in Romania.
3. What is the name of the treatment using the curative properties of salty air?
4. What salt mine spas will be visited by the winners of the Grand Prize?
