Travel Tips for Sinaia

Pack for Cool Weather

by witchdr

We were there in late June and it was still cool in the mountains even though the elevation wouldn't indicate it.

Pack a light jacket and/or a rain coat. Use a camera with a polarizing lense if possible. It helps remove reflections from windows and will darken the sky.

Church built in a cave - Ialomiciora Monastary

by DSwede

Built in the mouth of a cave, Ialomiciora Monastary is a unique find. Its well maintained, picturesque and relatively untraveled. If you venture to the end of the cave behind the monastery, you will find a small underwater waterfall.

First, you will have to get to the top of the mountain above Busteni (just to the north of Sinaia). From there, you can either go by foot, or take a secondary cable car most of the way. Either way, after the second cable car, it will still be another ~15 minutes hike.

Pay attention to the time because you don't want to miss the last cable car out, and its a LONG hike back!

Peles Castle

by Nobbe

Peles Castle is one of the best-preserved royal palaces in Europe. It served as the summer residence of the first Hohenzollern king of Romania, Carol I, and his wife Elizabeta (a writer and poet also known as Carmen Sylva, or "the poet of the forest").. Built in the latter half of the 19th century, it was the king's attempt to imitate the styles of his former homeland, creating a Bavarian setting in the mountains of Romania. The palace is ornately decorated, inside and out, with intricate wood carvings and paintings of scens form Wagner operas. Tours in English are available upon request.

tips

by irinuca

One simply can't visit Sinaia without seeing Peles. Perched upon a rolling green hill and set against the stark beauty of the Carpathian mountains, this magnificent castle (pictured, top left) appears to have been extracted directly from a Grimm Brothers' fairy tale. The first king of Romania, Carol I, visited Sinaia in 1866 to stay at the monastery, and fell in love with the place. Seven years later he bought the grounds and had Wilhelm Doderer, a German architect, build the palace in 1873 as a retreat from the summer heat in Bucharest. After the work was done in 1883, Carol immediately ordered an expansion to be built, finished in 1914. Visitors can view a large collection of European arms from the past five centuries and explore exotic rooms, decorated by artists from all over Europe. Some rooms are meant to be replicas of Turkish and Moorish castle halls, others are 'simply' decorated in German neo-renaissance style. Tour guides are quick to point out that Peles was the first castle in Europe to have both electricity and central heating. For one of the numerous tours in English or other foreign languages, enter the special foreigners door to your right in the courtyard, skipping the lines or Romanians.

You have to visit the castle to see who nice it is.

The long walk

by mvtouring

We stopped by the war memorial and then set out to the castle. I think my friend stopped there due to the snow and us not haveing snow tyres. However climbing all those stairs was quite a lot of fun esp in the snow
