Romania's Many Exciting Experiences...

December 2013


Winter sports and ski resorts in Romania

Romania’s ski slopes attract skiers and snowboarders of all levels, from novices to experts. Many of these resorts offer a multitude of other activities including cross-country skiing, snowboarding and tubing. The highest ski point in Romania has an altitude of 6,600 ft. The major ski resorts are Poiana Brasov, Sinaia, Predeal, Paltinis and Runcu.

Poiana Brasov is nestled at the foot of the Postavaru Massif at an altitude of 1200 meters. 12 kilometers from the medieval city of Brasov, the resort is surrounded by four mountains: Postavaru (1799 meters), Bucegi (2505 meters), Piatra Mare (1,848 meters), and Piatra Craiului (2238 meters). There are 14 ski slopes here, all of which are equipped with flood lighting and snow cannons. Poiana Brasov resort has slopes of Olympic level with tracks of over 20 km in length.

Poiana Brasov has 4600 meters of ski terrain of varying difficulty, equipped with two cable cars, one gondola and eight lifts with a capacity of 7,000 people per hour. Poiana Brasov is perfect for beginners; the beginning slopes are wide and gentle. Floodlights have been installed on the lower slopes so skiing can continue until 9 p.m.

There are also nine kilometers of marked runs for cross-country skiing. Apres ski features a good selection of hotels and restaurants. Poiana Brasov not only appeals to Romanian skiers, but German, French, Swiss and Italian too, as it is relatively cheap compared to others areas of Europe.

Sinaia is another popular destination for winter sports, especially downhill skiing. Set in a mountainous area, just east of the Bucegi Mountains, the resort resides between 850 and 1000 meters altitude. The 20 kilometers of ski slopes reach a height of 2050 meters. Visitors will find plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.

The ski resort of Predeal is located in the Prahova Valley with an altitude between 1033 and 1110 meters. The ski runs of Clabucet, Teleschi and Cioplea are equipped with chairlifts and offer inexpensive ski school lessons with qualified ski instructors who speak English, German, and French.

The mountain resort of Paltinis is situated at 1440 meters altitude. Paltinis is the highest and the oldest resort in Romania. A large residential area has been built over the last couple of years offering four hotels, six chalets, and 17 villas, along with numerous bars, restaurants, and shops. The longest ski slope in Paltinis measures 1150 meters with a difference in altitude of 241 meters.

 

Christmas Market in Sibiu

The Sibiu Christmas Market is celebrating its 7th anniversary this year, and the market has both developed and grown in attendance (both from Romania and beyond) in the past years.

The 2013 edition starts on the 22nd of November and ends on the 3rd of January, 2014.

The Sibiu Christmas Market is a cultural project initiated by the Au-Ro Austria Pro Romania Foundation and the Bureau of the Social Attaché of the Austrian Embassy, in partnership with the Sibiu municipality. Organized for the first time in 2007 when Sibiu was the European Cultural Capital, the Sibiu Christmas Market became famous in Romania due to its magnitude and for establishing a specific tradition.

Discover Sarmizegetusa by off-road cars

We'll begin with a private transfer by Jeep through the Orastie Mountains to Colonia Ulpia Traiana Augusta Dacica Sarmizegetusa.

Sarmizegetusa was the capital and the largest city of Roman Dacia, later named Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa after the former Dacian capital, located some 40 km away. Built on the ground of a camp of the Fifth Macedonian Legion, the city was settled by veterans of the Dacian wars. From the very beginning it received the title of colonia and the status of ius Italicum. With an area of 30 hectares (74 acres; 0.12 sq mi), a population between 20,000 and 25,000, and strong fortifications, Ulpia Traiana was the political, administrative and religious centre of Roman Dacia in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. The city was destroyed by the Goths. Today Ulpia Traiana remains in ruins, with a partly preserved forum, an amphitheatre, and remnants of several temples.
