Praid is a small but popular holiday centre situated very close to Sovata, home to a salt mine where people come for the respiratory illnesses’ treatment. Near the mine, there is also a treatment and entertainment centre where tourists will find two salt water outdoor pools, lockers, showers, a beach area, a bar, a fast-food and a summer terrace. The resort also boasts with a thermal pool, which is filled by a thermal water spring discovered in 1950. But Praid is not known only for its salt.
