Salina Praid is a salt mine and it’s situated in Praid, Harghita county, near the right edge of Transylvnian region. Coming from West, Praid (Parajd) is "the gate of Harghita county". Here the valley narrows more and the mountains are really close.
The Basin of Praid is situated on the East coast of the Transylvania Basin ("a huge salt cellar") at the base of Gurghiu Mountains, that forms a micro region so called "The zone of Salt Mines". The geographical zone of the salt mines is unique in its way and the name of "The salt region" comes from the salt mine of Praid. The first document with this name appears in the XVIII-th century, where are inventoried the pastures from the zone. The Basin of Praid lays around the "Hill of Salt" that contains Praid village and the two another "salt villages": Ocna de Jos and Ocna de Sus. The basin has a triangular form and is oriented at the South to Corund village and at the north-west to Sovata. The basin of Praid is separated from the rest of Transylvania by the following hills: Sálas - Firtus (1062 m), Fiasmál ( 983 m ), the stone of Cusmed (991), the stone of Siklód (1025 m ). The Hill of the Salt is called by the local people "salt back" (the highest point - 576m), covers the biggest salt body from the country, its roots are buried underground at 2,7 - 3km in depth. In horizontal section the salt diapir has an elliptic form, with diameters of 1,2 - 14km and in vertical section has a huge mushroom shape. This irregular form is a characteristic of the salt bodies from Transylvania. (for ex. the salt body from Ocna Mures)
