Poiana Brasov is located in the Carpathian Mountains, in the neighborhood of the medieval city of Brasov, about 180 kilometres (106 miles) north of Bucharest.
Modern and luxurious, yet rooted in a well preserved environment, Poiana Brasov is an important tourist centre, comparable to other notorious European resorts in the Alps.
Poiana Brasov has long been an international destination. It all started in 1951, when Poiana Brasov hosted the World Student Winter Games. Since then, the resort has been the host of many important competitions, it became the country's most popular ski resort, and it's been under constant development.
But Poiana Brasov's magic can best be found in its surroundings. A cable car trip to the top of Postavaru Mountain offers breathtaking views. A paragliding flight will give you a sense of freedom and empowerment, while the pristine and mostly untouched environment will make you feel as if you're in a fairy-tale.
