DESCRIPTION & FEATURES OF THE TREKKING TOUR
♦ Piatra Craiului National Park – with its narrow and saw-like ridge the mountains are considered to be one of the most beautiful in Carpathian mountains range
♦ Bucegi Natural Park is Romania’s best-kept secret, rivalling Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains and the Alps when it comes to trekking. Their many glaciers, canyons, caves and lakes offer a wealth of natural beauty, history and adventure.
♦ Brasov – Fringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains and resplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, as well as a wealth of historical attractions, Brasov is one of the most visited places in Romania. Founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211 on an ancient Dacian site and settled by the Saxons as one of the seven walled citadels, Brasov exudes a distinct medieval ambiance and has been used as backdrop in many recent period films. Stroll around the old Town Hall Square (Piata Sfatului) where you can admire colorfully painted and ornately trimmed baroque structures. Take a peek inside the Black Church (Biserica Neagra), the largest gothic church between Vienna and Istanbul. The interior is impressive and well-kept and houses one of the largest organs in Eastern Europe.
