By far the most popular ski resort in Romania, Poiana Braşov is also one of the most charming destinations in the country. It is the starting point to see other ski resorts in the neighborhood, including Predeal, Buşteni, Azuga and Sinaia.
Exchange rates can sometimes turn the best vacation deal into a nightmare. The recent Swiss Franc valuation caught ski vacationers by surprise. When expensive Alps ski resorts get even more expensive, many European skiers just stay home. Fortunately there is another solution. Skiing the Carpathians, Slovenian Alps, Caucasus, and other Eastern European resorts almost always costs half as much.
