  • We went here on a whim when we were in Sopeon. It exceeded my expectations. I learned that around 1200--1500 Hungary, especially Transylvania, was the gold supplier to the world. Perhaps that is why Romania wants to keep even the part which would like to be in Hungary. Minerals--it'a all about $$$.

  • Nice museum in nice building. Could be a bit bigger though.

  • Closed now, although it should be open.

  • Szetintem kicsit unalmas volt, lehetne kretívabb a kialakítás, plusz túl van bonyolítva a megtekintés menete.

  • Sajnos csalódás volt, kevés a látnivaló (bár az érdekes volt). A qr kódos nem működött egyáltalán nálam (elvileg alkalmas qr szoftver és telefon mellett).
