Around 800 km. By car, driving 10-12 hours or by plane from Constanta to Cluj-Napoca and after that 30 km by car to Turda.

There are elevators but when it is crowded you should wait a lot:( so try to go in week days. I would recommend to ask if they have a special solutions for the people who can have difficulties while they are walking.
