Busteni is situated in the Prahova Valley, in Prahova County, at the foot of the Caraiman Massif of the Bucegi Mountains. It's one of the most spectaculars resorts in Romania as it is surrounded by amazing peaks.
Busteni has cool summers (average temperature in July: 15.5°C) and cold winters (average temperature in January: -5°C). Each year the pure air and breathtaking landscape attract thousands of tourists to Romania where they can enjoy skiing and hiking.
The resorts along the mountain chain which cross Romania from north to south offer guests excellent facilities for recreation in both summer and winter. During the winter months, Busteni offers the opportunity to enjoy skiing and sledding. Here you'll find ski tracks of varying difficulty levels.
There are also opportunities for hiking, caving, observing nature or skiing on well-marked slopes. Busteni has a spa which operates year-round. The climate and fresh air (without allergens), as well as the healthy ozone-rich environment, is recommended for the recovery/treatment of asthenic neurosis (as well as other asthenic conditions), physical and intellectual overexertion, rachitis, physical developmental problems in children, and general convalescence. Busteni makes a great starting point for trips into the mountains around which lie numerous natural phenomenas: "Babele" - a wind-chiseled slope in the Bucegi Massif; the "Shpynx" - the result of the combined action of wind, rain and snow; gorges, caves, etc.
