Bucegi Mountains and Prahova Valley



Bucegi Mountains

The Bucegi mountains are located in central Romania, south of the city Braşov. They are part of the Southern Carpathians group of the Carpathian Mountains.
To the east, the Bucegi mountains have a very steep slope towards the popular tourist destination Prahova Valley (a.o. Buşteni and Sinaia).
At a higher elevation is the Bucegi Plateau, where wind and rain have turned the rocks into spectacular figures such as the Sphinx and Babele.

They're grouped in three parts:

* Bucegi Mountains (Omul Peak - 2505 meters)
* Leaota Mountains (Leaota Peak - 2133 meters)
* Piatra Craiului Mountains (Baciului Peak - 2238 meters)

The Bran Pass separates the Piatra Craiului and Leaota ranges; it was marked by border crossings between Wallachia and Transylvania, and was defended by the Bran Castle.
The Bucegi is believed to be the Thracian holy mountain Kogainon, on which the mythical figure Zalmoxis resided in a cave.

Prahova Valley

Prahova Valley (Romanian: Valea Prahovei) is the valley where the Prahova river makes its way between the Bucegi and the Baiului Mountains, in the Carpathian Mountains, Romania.
It is a tourist region, situated about 100 km north of the capital city of Bucharest.
Geographically, the Prahova river separates the Eastern Carpathians chain from the Southern Carpathians.
Historically, the corridor was the most important passage way between the principalities of Wallachia and Transylvania.
The present DN1 road, linking Bucharest with the city of Braşov and the future A3 will be built along the Prahova Valley.
Prahova Valley will be the bid of Romania for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.
The region is a popular destination for mountaineers and for winter sports fans. The most important resorts are:
* Predeal
* Azuga
* Buşteni
* Sinaia
* Comarnic
* Breaza
