We have started a three-week tour at the mountains nearest to Bucharest and moved West along the Carpatians from Piatra Craiuli to Apuseni. Moving West one encounters less & less visitors and that's probably what accounts for much of Retezat charm. While reaching Retezat sites...More

One of the great mountains in Romania. National Park, very well preserved. 2 peaks over 2500 meters: Peleaga and Papusa. Bucura Lake is the biggest glacial lake in Romania.
