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.

Mr. Walker, Lake Bohinj
Our holiday was to Lake Bohinj, Hotel Jezero for 10 days, ending on 2nd July 2011.
We flew with Adria Airways both ways and the flights were excellent, on time, very comfortable planes (CRJ 900), plenty of luggage allowance and in flight snacks/drinks provided.
We were half board at the Hotel Jezero on the Lake side. We were going to do some walking and the Jezero was a very good base for this activity. The room was very comfortable, Hotel Facilities very good, good choice of food. The local people were friendly and helpful and in general we had an excellent holiday and would not hesitate in coming back to the Jezero.
