Carpathian Mountains
Carpathian Mountains - TravelPuppy.com
This beautiful and densely forested mountainous region lends itself to several sporting and leisure activities such as bob-sleighing, skiing, horseriding and tennis. Situated in picturesque valleys and on mountain slopes are many health and winter resorts, open all year round and well equipped with ski-hire facilities. The major resorts are: Borsa, Durau, Paltinis, Busteni, Poiana Brasov and Predeal (both of which have illuminated ski slopes), Semenic and Sinaia (bob-sleigh tracks). All are equipped to cater for a long winter sports season running from December to April. Impressive mountain lakes are found in the Fagaras and Retezat ranges, and caves in the Bihor, Apuseni and Mehedinti regions. The Hurezi Monastery, in the Vâlcea county, has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
