Bucharest, which is the national capital, is located 75 miles (121 kilometers) southeast of Busteni.
Busteni offers a number of interesting destinations to visit. Cantacuzino Castle and the Bucegi National Park are two great options.
The area around Busteni is wonderfully endowed with natural and cultural attractions, from big-ticket tourist hotspots to hidden gems that lay slightly off the beaten path. Check out the Sinaia Monastery and Peles Castle in and around Sinaia, which is 4 miles (6 kilometers), away from Busteni. If you feel like doing more in this part of Romania, make your way over to Bran to visit the Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress. Bran is 11 miles (18 kilometers) away.
Holy places are great windows into a community's heart and soul. The monasteries of Wallachia are certainly no exception. If you have great weather, take the time to explore Wallachia 's farms.
There can be times when one of the better ways to get to know a place is by hiring local guides. The Wallachia offers some fascinating guided nature walks, city walking tours and winery tours. Pull on your woollen hat and mittens and go cross-country skiing or snow shoeing. Both of these are popular with locals and visitors.
When it is time to leave Busteni, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your Romanian lei on last-minute souvenirs, and bid a fond La revedere (farewell) to this spectactular spot.
