Sinaia Travel Guide

Known as the 'Pearl of the Carpathians' for its beautiful mountain scenery, the winter ski resort of Sinaia is nestled in the Prahova valley surrounded by the snow-covered peaks of the Bucegi Mountains, a stunning holiday retreat. It is also the setting for Peles Castle, a beautiful creation in the German-Renaissance style and considered to be one of the finest castles in Europe. With the construction of the castle as a summer residence for King Carol I, the little hamlet became an exclusive aristocratic resort and today is filled with holidaymakers who come to walk or ski in the mountains.The Sinaia ski resort has more than 20 ski slopes served by nine ski lifts. The longest ski slope is two and a half kilometres. The resort offers great skiing, for beginner, intermediate and expert skiers; there are six blue runs, four red and 11 black. The highest ski slope starts at an altitude of 6,500 feet (2,000m), while the lowest one starts off at 2,800 feet (850m) above sea level. Sinaia ski lifts operate from 8:45am until 4pm on every day of the week except Mondays. Ski equipment is available for renting at Sinaia for those that do not have their own equipment. Using the ski lifts costs two euro and skiers have to purchase all their tickets at the start of their day on the slopes. The resort also boasts other attractions such as a 17th-century monastery with original frescoes, and the small Pelisor Palace.
