Bucegi is a special place for all those who wanders here. Marvelous landscapes, monasteries built in caves, huge stone carved objects like Babele and Sfinx offers the possibility to be visited , some of them the whole year. Dracula's castle at the bottom of the mountains remains among the most attractive places to visit in Romania A little piece of heaven, as some called it will be covered in six days, and finally at the end of excursion we'll visit Brasov an architecture jewel.

HI We are thinking of doing this in 2018. Are there specific dates and is there an agent that we need to book through, or is it a "self-guided" trip? Cheers Linda

Hi Ziggy, it depends on how you plan your trip. You can reach the tour start by car or train in both Sinaia and Busteni. In Sinaia you can visit the Peles ans Pelisor castles as well as Sinaia Monastery. Possibly you have more train connections. Busteni is smaller than Sinaia but you still can visit some very interesting but not so famous places like Cantacuzino Castle or "Cezar Petrescu" memorial house. Now it depends on you on how you like to spend the time before and after climbing.
