Sinaia is one of the most beautiful mountain resorts in Romania, if not in Europe, surrounded by a fantastic natural landscape with high mountains (Muntii Bucegi). Sinaia is especially known for its breathtaking landscapes and its numerous monuments, which attract visitors from all over the world to this beautiful corner of the world. One of the most famous landmarks of the city is Peleș Castle (Castelul Peles si Castelul Pelisor), which was built in the 19th century for King Charles I and is known for its woodcarvings and has been the setting for numerous movies. Another highlight in Sinaia is the Sinaia Monastery (Manastirea Sinaia) , founded in the 17th century and an important religious site in Romania. Also of importance was and is the Sinaia Casino with its magnificent halls, which you can visit. Bring time with you when you come to Sinaia, this place is really special and you should not miss the beautiful nature.
Sinaia is not only worth seeing, but also a great place for outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing and mountain biking. In the surrounding mountains and forests you will find numerous hiking trails, as well as in the ski resorts well prepared slopes for skiers and snowboarders. The various modern cable cars (Telegondola) will take you to the top of Cota 1400 and Cota 2000, from where you will have a great view and in summer you can also have a picnic. From Cota 2000 you can also hike to the unique rock formations Babele and Sphinx (Sfinxul), which are also part of the beautiful Bucegi Nature Park. From Babele you can already see the big cross (Crucea Eroilor de pe Muntele Caraiman), which was built on the mountain. But back to the city of Sinaia, where you should also visit one of the museums. The City Museum (Castelul Stirbey) is recommended, as well as the Natural History Museum (Muzeul Rezervatia Bucegi) in the Bucegi Nature Reserve.
