  1. Sinaia is one of the most beautiful mountain resorts in Romania, the former residence of the kings of Romania, with a rich cultural and social past. I’m glad you visited this resort. It is very close to Targoviste, the city where I live. Only 60 km!

    • Targoviste was to the west of our route … And in Bulgaria we have a town with this name 🙂 Also Predel, but there is a passage between two mountains – Rila and Pirin.
      But I’m really impressed with Sinaia and Brasov!
