Skiing in Sinaia is an elevated experience – after all, it’s Romania’s highest point, with Furnica Peak stretching high into the clouds. During the winter season, visitors flock to the ski resort, with the Gondola Sinaia providing hassle-free access to the slopes. Meanwhile, the warmer summer months are perfect for hiking. Visit the royal family’s former residence, Peleș Castle, completed in 1883, and the Sinaia Monastery with icons painted by Romanian artist Pârvu Mutu. Discover the best hotels Sinaia has to offer, all bookable with Culture Trip.

Immerse yourself in the grandeur of Peleș Castle at this 21-room Bavarian-style hotel, built in 1884 by one of the castle’s architects. Just south of the Sinaia Monastery and west of Dimitrie Ghica Park, the villa is within walking distance of the area’s highlights, yet sits behind a delightful garden entrance offering a slice of serenity in the Carpathian Mountains.

Stepping inside this Rina Hotels outpost on the city’s main street is like entering a Nordic haven. Opt for a room with a balcony to savour that brisk mountain air, or a family suite with a double bed and three singles. There’s also the new Silena Mountain Spa, with an indoor heated pool, dry sauna and hammam, where you can unwind after a long day on the mountain.

Après-ski is so much cosier when you’re in your own apartment, cuddled up by the fireplace. Each unit inside the Hotel Elexus also comes with a fully equipped kitchen, which is great for families and large groups. The four-person deluxe apartment is especially spacious. Even though you get plenty of privacy, the property is still right in the centre of town, just a five-minute walk to the train station.

4. Hotel Boutique Belvedere
