Sinaia holidays

Sinaia sits at the foot of the fir-clad Bucegi Mountains in the narrow Prahova Valley, and is dubbed “Pearl of the Carpathians”. This small town is full of charm and compliments its scenic surroundings.

The town gains its name from a Romanian nobleman Mihai Cantacuzino who, following a pilgrimage he made to the biblical Mount Sinai in Israel in 1695, founded the Sinaia Monastery. Sinaia later developed into a more popular settlement after King Carol I selected the area for his summer residence in 1870, and built what is today Romania’s most beautiful palace.
