Sinaia

Sinaia was once an upper-class resort, but today it is a mass destination, and the main street is packed with hotels. There are some elegant villas if you take to the streets up the hill, but it's not the atmosphere that draws you to Sinaia. No, people come here for two things. One is the Bucegi mountains that are popular both in summer and in winter, and which I cover on a separate page. The other is the extravagant Peleş castle, which dominates this suite of picture. If you thought the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest was overkill, just wait...
