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.

Mrs. Smith, Sozopol

The hotel and the resort lovely, nothing to complain about.
Mr. Pete Lines, St. Konstantin
Having had holidays with you in St Konstantin for the last 10 - 12 years and never having had any problems with flights ( except for the odd hour delay, which is understandable ) I was surprised to find that my return flight to Luton had been cancelled completely.
What I would like to do is firstly thank your representative in St Konstantin, Desi, who let me down very gently with the information and then proceeded to work through her lunch break to find me another hotel room for the night and then into the night to keep me informed of progress on the rebooking of the flight.
I would also like to thank the rest of the staff in both Golden Sands and London for procuring for me another ticket for the next day (which I am sure was no easy task at such short notice).
It is employees like these that makes me come back to Balkan Holidays year after year.
Mr. Cunningham, Budva
Just wanted to feedback on holiday we took with you to Aleksander Apartments in Budva. My family really enjoyed the experience - comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff, lots to do for the kids. The hotel pool was lovely, the beach and promenade full of interest and old town nice to walk around. We would definitely come back again. Thanks to you and the staff at hotel.
