Goodbye Bucharest, Hello Sinaia!
We made our way to Sinaia from Bucharest via train – this was both an affordable and efficient way to arrive as trains were running twice a day and the ride took only about 1 1/2 hours. The train ride itself was stunning and I would highly recommend traveling this way as you get to see remote areas that are not accessible via bus or car. We left in the morning and watched the fog lifting from the valleys and snaking its way through the trees as the sun broke through the brightly colored fall leaves in the mountains and foothills surrounding Sinaia.
That train ride alone was worth the trip to Sinaia, but it was not the reason for our journey to this quaint mountain village.
