Waking Up in Azuga

Bucharest had been the first part of our trip to Romania. Bran was in our plans for the next two days. What we didn’t plan at all was spending a night in Azuga, a popular destination for winter sports fans, in the mountains of Prahova. We arrived to Azuga at midnight. Once again,Read More …
