Azuga city is situated between Sinaia international resort and Predeal ski resort. Azuga is at the foot of the Bucegi Mountains, with an elevation of 1,110 m. It is 38 km to Poiana-Brasov and 147 km to Bucharest. The longest ski run in Romania, Sorica, is here and is accessible by a modern chair-lift. Azuga has cool summers and cold winters.
This has the “Babele” and the “Sphynx”, which are wind-modeled stones located in the Bucegi Massif, accessible by cable car or a two hour climb up the mountain. A second cable-car links Busteni with the Caraiman peak where there is the Hotel Pestera and a unique cave Monastery. On top of the Caraiman Massif, at 2,484 m altitude, you can see a striking 40m high steel cross memorial to those that passed away in WWI.
Located 25km from Brasov in the direction of Bucharest, Predeal is a popular resort. In the winter, skiing is the main attraction, but the town is a good starting place for spectacular trips in the mountains that surround Brasov.
Located 12 km from Brasov, Poiana Brasov is probably Romania’s most famous skiing resort. There is typically snow for 120 days a year here. There are a number of nice hotels and restaurants, modern winter sports facilities, and numerous ski slopes.
