Builded between 1926-1928 at 2.291 m altitude, has a heigh of 36 m, very imposing and easy to access from Busteni. After going up with the cable car, it’s about 1.5 hours of pretty easy walk to get to the base.

When you go to Romania, definitelly visit this small mountain city. I love it everytime i go there. Hicking to Crucea Caraiman may not be for everyone though. The trip is exhausting but worth it

The hiking to the cross offers very beautiful landscapes over the Bucegi mountains. The cross itself is in the Guinness Book as the tallest cross at over 2000 metres altitude. The view over the Prahova Valley is also impressive.
