Cantacuzino Castle and Baiului Mountains – one day hike and cultural tour

Cantacuzino Castle

The most beautiful and spectacular panoramic view to the Bucegi Mountains, you may see it from the top of the gentile and grassy hills of  Baiului Mountains. The area is best known  only by the local mountaineers. Due unmarked trails, is not visited by many  tourists and still remains a virgin and unveiled mark, from where you may attend on a fascinating game of clouds. And this it not all! At the base of the mountain it’s resting a fairytale castle : Cantacuzino Castle, an idyllic place with a great view on  Caraiman Peak and The Hero Cross from Bucegi Mountains. The castle has its own charm and represents one of the hidden spots from Prahova Valley.

A tour that can be done in any season!
