After the bustle of Budapest and Arad, and a long train ride, Sinaia was the perfect way to end our trip. This sub-Alpine town, located 79 miles north of Bucuresti, is one of the most popular resorts in Romania, yet it was surprisingly quiet and peaceful.
Sinaia is the home of Peles Castle, built between 1875 and 1896. The castle tour was closed on the day that we went there, but the guard allowed us to walk around the grounds.
We also took a cable car high into the mountains for a picnic lunch and a spectacular view.
