Sinaia, 122km from Bucharest, has been dubbed the "Pearl of the Carpathians" for its magnificent mountain scenery and royal castle. Originally the preserve of a few hermits and shepherds, and later an exclusive aristocratic resort, nowdays, it's full of tourists to walk or ski in the Bucegi Mountains. Sinaia Orthodox Monastery (1846) was commissioned by King Carol I. Posted by Hello
