AFAIK there is no other "Abcoude" in the world. In fact, it's the only town in the world that starts with "abc" and ends with "de"

But we're getting OT

indeed busteni is located under bucegi mountains, most popular mountain area in romania.here there are well known resorts of sinaia, busteni and predeal.nearby u can find the beautiful town of brasov, with a great medieval center, and the resort of poiana brasov.the most important road in romania(DN1) links bucharest with brasov through prahova valley, passing through sinaia,busteni,predeal.here is a good link with lots of photos:

Thanks for the information, it looks impressive there, in Bulgaria there aren´t as extrem mountains except one place in the rila mountain where there are a few peaks as steep as that and with very hard to climb rockwalls but except that there is no such landscape, I might visit busteni someday because it´s not so far away and the landscape is really impressive. Any Romanian who was to bestuni would be dissapointed with all Bulgarian mountainresorts except the Rila monastery and Rilska valley where the landscape is similar to southtyrol but only there.

If you want a nice name for a town, you should adopt Gasselternijveenschemond instead

Gasselternijveenschemond is sometimes called Gasselterboerveenschemond, a typical Romanian name

This might be a bit OT though I'll also add that National Road 1, the most congested road in Romania, passes right through the center of this awesome town. Crossing the main street usually takes a few minutes, as far as I can remember.

I've been visiting Busteni with my family since I was 3 years old, and we all agree it is the most beautiful place in our country. Unfortunately, nowadays from western Romania it takes just as much time (if not less) to reach Kaprun in Austria which is probably double the distance. This due to chronic lack of motorways.

The Romanian wikipedia has a few awesome pictures: http://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buşteni

EDIT: I've also found some cool ones on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=busteni

We visited Bucuresti, Sinaia, Brasov and Sighisoara, really nice places, and we traversed anything from motorways (or, rather, a motorway...) to rocky (really!) local roads where I thought 15 kph would shake the rented Mondeo to bits. In between, basically everything. Possibly the craziest section was from Bran Castle to Curtea de Arges: Partly an E road which even Norweigan road engineers would be ashamed of, partly an insane concrete road (the 73C) with an up to 50 cm height difference between the two lanes. In one place, about 15 metres of the road was simply missing - there was only a big dirt hole. We were considering turning back until a brand new BMW 7-series blasted across the missing section, doing about 60 kph. Then, we dared to creep across very slowly. In short, a splendid trip, and driver mentality was not as insane as expected.

The contract for the Cernavoda-Medgidia section of A2 was signed yesterday with Colas. The section Medgidia-Constanta is awarded and the contract will be signed until the end of the year. Constanta motorway by-pass (Agigea-Ovidiu) was awarded to Astaldi (dunno if the contract was signed yet).
