"Sinaia, pearl of the Carpathians" Sinaia by Dabs

Sinaia Travel Guide: 171 reviews and 577 photos

Our final stop of the first leg of our Romania trip was in the town of Sinaia. Technically Sinaia is in the province of Wallachia but it has the same flavor as the medieval Saxon towns found in Transylvania.

Sinaia is a resort area located in the Bucegi Mountains, in the wintertime a place to go for a skiing holiday, in the summertime a place to enjoy some hiking. But our time here was short, a visit to Peles Palace and the Sinaia Monastery and we were on our way back to Bucharest.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The beautiful Peles Castle, awesome scenery
  • Cons:Not a lot of options for dining
  • Last visit to Sinaia: May 2005

    Sinaia is one of the towns we still have to visit in Romania. Nice little page here.

    Good tips. I know Sinaia as a winter and skiing resort only. I even didn't know about Peles Palace and the Sinaia Monastery to visit there.

    The no photograph rule wouldn't have stopped me! :-)

    Since I always enjoy castles and palaces, I'm sure I would have enjoyed this one. Thanks.
