The majestic Southern Carpathian Mountains that cut through Romania have long been popular with international tourists heading for the skillfully prepared slopes, desperate to try a new skiing destination.
Romania is famous for being home to Europe's highest population of Brown Bears and home to over a third of all European plant species the Carpathians are now becoming more recognised for their fantastic up and coming ski and snowboard resorts. Without doubt Romania's most popular and most developed ski resort is Poiana Brasov, which continues to grow each year in popularity due to its continued investment in its infrastructure, while still remaining fantastic value for money.
Nestled in a marvelous landscape on a plateau at the foot of Postavarul Mountain, only 12kms from the Medieval town of Brasov, the resort of Poiana Brasov or “The Sunny Glade” offers guests a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, alongside great skiing and snowboarding opportunities. In the most recent Post Office Travel Services report into the best value ski resorts across Europe, the USA and Canada, the resort of Poiana Brasov was ranked 1st, as the best value ski resort, which will only help to not only enhance the resorts image but guarantee its continued growth and popularity.
Dracula’s Castle - a day out to really get your teeth into!
Legend has it that Count Dracula, the mediaeval Prince
of Transylvania, lived in Bran Castle. A fantastic trip with
lunch at Moeciu.
City tour of Brasov with its fascinating historic centre is
just 13 km away from the resort.
Peles Castle: This was the former residence of the
Romanian Royal Family. Set in beautiful surroundings,
with the breathtaking interior. We recommend this for a
half day visit.

I would like to bring to your attention the fact of how impressed I have been with the excellent service I received whilst on holiday by one of your Balkan Reps. My daughter Jasmine was taken ill and Balkan Rep Tatyana Demerdjieva stepped in and gave us help advice and assistance over and above the call of duty.Tatyana made us feel secure in the knowledge that she was available even on days off if we needed her assistance, even during the night if we needed her. She is the best holiday Representative that we have ever met in all the holidays we have had. Thanks Tanya, thanks Balkan.
