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.

We just returned from our 6th holiday with you to Bulgaria. Just had to say thank you for another wonderful holiday. This was our first time at the Mirage Hotel Nessebar, and because it was so good we booked up five days after our return, for next year. Well done Balkans and thank you once again.
