Castle Tour & Hiking with Great Views in Prahova Valley

Dan With: Dan 1
This is a great day trip to enjoy the finest of Romania. First, the beautiful Cantacuzino Castle built in the 1900s as the residence of the wealthiest political dynasty of Romania, famous for its interior artwork and magnificent view of the Carpathian Mts. Then we go on a hiking trip in Baiului Mts. which I think offers the most stunning views and best landscapes in Romania. Ready for a full day?

    Hiking in the Carpathian Mountains

    A beautiful hike in some of the most impressive mountains on Prahova Valley: Baiului Mountain range is very popular among those who like hiking, cycling and ski touring. We hike to the top (1800m) where the mountains have a mellow ridge with soft valleys we can cross - it's like walking on top of the world! For photography lovers this is the perfect place to get panoramic views of Romania's great outdoors!

    Instead of Cantacuzino, you can choose to visit Peles Castle in Sinaia, built as a summer residence for the Romanian Royal family. An architectural, engineering and interior masterpiece, the castle is very well preserved and one of Romania's top attractions!
