Optional sights for visiting on this trip
First mentioned in an official document in 1331, the fortress was built by Teutonic Knights as protection against invading Tartars and was later enlarged by the local Saxon population. Is located on a rocky hilltop in the Carpathian Mountains, 650 ft. above the town of Rasnov. Guarded by nine towers, two bastions and a drawbridge, the fortress was only breached once, in 1612,when the Ottomans discovered the secret passage inhabitants used to sneak out to fetch water. The fortress was last used as a place of refuge during the revolution of 1848 and was abandoned after that. Recently, the old fortress has been restored to its former glory and today, you can visit the impressive remains.
In the picturesque town of Sinaia, Peles Castle is a masterpiece of German new-Renaissance architecture. Commissioned by King Carol I in 1873, the castle served as the summer residence of the royal family until 1947. King Carol’s successor, King Ferdinand built a smaller version, but equally grand. Several auxiliary buildings were built simultaneously with the castle: the guards’ chambers, the Economat Building, the Foișor hunting lodge, the royal stables, and a power plant. Peleș became the world’s first castle fully powered by locally produced electricity. Here you can admire how the furniture, art and decor change from one room to another in one of the most beautiful houses in Europe.
Old salt mine Slanic Prahova
Slanic mine is an old salt mine, located in Slănic, Prahova County, Romania, just 100 km north of Bucharest. The salt mine is closed for extraction purposes, but is open for visitors, featuring a microclimate with natural air-conditioning and constant temperature and atmospheric pressure throughout the year. The constant microclimate, rich in aerosols, has made it a popular destination for people with respiratory issues. One area is sectioned off and is being used for medical patients with lung cancer to come and rest. Throughout the mine you will find various types of equipment for recreational activity such as playground equipment and some ping-pong tables.
