Sinaia is situated in a breathtaking mountain scenery, it is located at 50 km distance from Bran, on the Prahova Valley.
Sinaia is a town and a mountain resort in Romania. The town was named after Sinaia Monastery of 1695, around which it was built. It has a population of 10,410 inhabitants.
Peleș Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, in Prahova County, Romania, on an existing medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia, built between 1873 and 1914. Its inauguration was held in 1883.
Peles Castle has a very beautiful figure. I am leaving here for the Sinaia Monastery.
The Sinaia Monastery was founded by Prince Mihail Cantacuzino (1650-1716), second in command of Walachian troops. He had made a pilgrimage to Mount Sinai in Egypt with his family in 1695, and named after the great Saint Catherine’s Monastery on Mount Sinai.
In the center of the courtyard there is an old church built in the 17th century.
The construction of Great Church began in 1842 and was completed in 1846.
After this I will come back Brasov soon and take a tour the city inside.
