 Group selfie in front of Peleş Castle

Sinaia, Romania, is an amazing place right in the middle of the Bucegi Mountains. This city is also known as the royal city, because at some point, King Carol I made a visit here and he liked the place and he decided to build a castle (Peleş Castle), and one of the first train tracks in Romania (Ploiesti-Predeal). Peleş Castle was built after the plans of the Czech architect, Karel Liman, and looks similar to the ones owned by Hohenzollern family in Germany. Other things to see in this city include Sinaia Monastery; Old Royal Casino; The Royal Train Station; and many more other old, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century houses.

You can get to Sinaia from Bucharest in several ways. You can take the train from The North Train Station (Gara de Nord). The schedule is available online. There are also trains owned by a private company that you can ride; these tend to be way cheaper, but less comfortable. Buses are supposed to be faster than the train, but the traffic on the highway toward Sinaia can get pretty bad and you can get stuck for hours. Other preferred methods include traveling by car (you can rent one) or by hitchhiking.

Sinaia is a must-see in Romania! Your Sinaia, Romania hostel is a great base from which to explore all the great sights on offer in this area.
