On Transbucegi you have a lot of attractions (not to tell about the road itself): at Cabana Dichiu you can go to Babele, Sfinx or you take the right way and continue to Bolboci Lake, an artificial lake but still impressive where you can have...More

A monastery inside an enormous cave - simply breathtaking! Bring something warm and you must wear the helmet that they provide because many of the channels into the cave are narrow. Really, this is a great way to cool down on a hot day.

Hi - we drove up to the Cave (there is a parking lot about a 10 minute walk away from the actual Monastery). If I remember correctly, the cableway is not very close. Yes, it's really impressive! Bring a jacket because it... More
