Sinaia Travel


 

Welcome to City of Sinaia


In South-Central Romania is the town of Sinaia. This was named from a nearby monastery, but today it is a well-known resort and spa town. It is set in the Prahova River Valley and is close to the famous Peles Castle built by King Carol I of Romania.

What is of significance about this site to those making Sinaia travel plans is the simple fact that it is a year round destination. Many of Romania's (as well as most of Europe's) great spa sites don't have much to offer during winter months, but Sinaia's proximity to the Bucegi Mountains makes it very popular with hikers, skiers, and those who enjoy being able to head outdoors in the colder weather.

Of course not everyone appreciates feet of snow, but a visit to Sinaia can also include trips to many other fascinating natural and cultural attractions. For example, there is Pelisor Castle, the remains of the Sinaia Monastery, the Sinaia Casino and the Franz Joseph and Saint Anne Cliffs, which are amazing spots to for gaining incredible views of the Prahova Valley below.

Sightseeing Of Sinaia


The city itself is located within the Bucegi Natural Park, and this means that visitors must never pick flowers, harvest plants, or even capture insects while making a visit to the park.

When beginning to jot down your Sinaia travel plans don't forget to include a trip to the picturesque Sinaia City Hall and to be sure to grab a ride on the cable car, or to visit the steam engine on display in the town's railway station as well.

As already mentioned, this is a spot where winter activities are popular, and the colder weather begins in November lasting through late March. The temperatures never dip dramatically, but a mountainous condition can mean unpredicted weather, so pack accordingly when making a winter visit.
