Sinaia The Essential
Interesting
Thanks to its location in the Prahova Valley at the foot of the Bucegi mountains, Sinaia is today a renowned ski resort. Its popularity with Bucharest residents dates from the early 20C; after King Carol I commissioned Peles castle nearby, the nobility built their villas and chalets here. Don't miss its monastery, the reason why Sinaia is here in the first place.
