What you'll do

Working in the Music Business gave me the chance to travel a lot & make friends all around the world. The stories about my country conquered them & they came to visit. That's how this tour was born 3 years ago: for my friends. I will treat you just like I did with them & give you the local feeling, if you decide to discover the Royal City of Sinaia & Busteni by my side. I tailored it as a 12 hour experience that will start at 8:30AM with the fastest way to reach Prahova Valley - a train ride from Bucharest to Busteni. We'll arrive at 11AM. First stop will be at Cantacuzino Castle from Busteni, where you'll get to take photos with the best panorama of Bucegi Mountains. Lunch will be next. You can enjoy a royal meal at this castle or you can opt for a traditional Romanian restaurant surrounded by mountains in Sinaia. We'll embark on a 15 minute train ride from Busteni to our next & main destination - the Royal City of Sinaia. Peles & Pelisor Castles will be the first stops on our list. We'll walk through a mesmerisingly beautiful paved forest path, so bring on comfortable shoes. You'll have time here to buy souvenirs & traditional Romanian products. Next stops will be the Sinaia Monastery (exterior) & the Royal Casino (exterior) located in a bohemian park that we'll cross on our way back to the train station. We'll leave for Bucharest at 7PM, arriving by 9PM.

Diana

My travel story starts way before myself being born. My dad is a passionate traveler who managed to visit our home country in its entirety – Romania, before turning 25. If it wouldn’t have been for the Communism, he would have toured the entire Europe for sure. And he wasn’t a rich guy. No. He had his backpack & went out in the wild, making friends everywhere. I continued his passion, as I am a Freelancer who's traveled to 16 countries on two continents (Europe & North America) before turning 28. I work in the Music Business as a Publicist and Tour Production Assistant for biggest names in the game. That's how I made friends around the world who wanted to visit Romania & that's how this tour started three years ago: for friends. I live in Bucharest, but the Royal City of Sinaia is the home to my heart. Let's discover it together!
