Sinaia Vacation Packages
Experience scintillating Sinai, a small town surrounded by enchanting natural scenery that has prompted hikers, skiers, artisans and even Romanian royalty to live here. This mountain resort charms with its preserved history, gorgeous buildings, old-world customs and adventure opportunities.
The town of Sinaia began with the construction of the Sinaia Monastery in 1695. The name of the church, and subsequently the town, refers to Mount Sinai, a sacred biblical site. Take a tour of the monastery to see monks painting, meditating and strolling around gardens. Admire the monastery’s architecture, which combines Byzantine-era spires with horizontal brickwork that is typical of Romanian churches.
Tour the exquisite Peles Castle, a 20th-century palace built for King Carol I. Admire the Renaissance-style façades, browse an armory of 1,600 ancient weapons and note the attention to detail in themed rooms dedicated to cultures around the world. Next door, photograph the exquisite fachwerk, or timber framing, of the Pelisor Castle.
Take another walk through history at the George Enescu Memorial House, a museum dedicated to one of Romania’s most famous musicians. Explore the house’s modest chambers to see belongings and instruments of George Enescu, the 19th-century composer.
Stroll along Carol I Boulevard, the city’s main thoroughfare, to find upmarket cafés, restaurants and shopping options. As evening falls, head to Sinaia Casino to enjoy a world-class meal, see the work of local artists on display or try your luck at the gaming tables.
Sinaia is most accessible by train from Bucharest. Once in Sinaia you can explore the town on foot as most attractions are within walking distance of one another.
Head out of town to discover the mountainous terrain where you can find exhilarating hiking and skiing opportunities. Take the challenging hike up Busteni Mountain or ride the cable car for easy transportation to the peak with a view of the valley. In winter, the town comes alive with skiers and snowboarders attracted by the region’s good snowfalls. Ski the slopes of the Bucegi Valley, which boasts a 3.7-mile (6-kilometer) trail.
