About DURAU Resort
The Durau resort is located in the village Ceahlau, at 9 km from the lake Izvorul Muntelui, in a sunny plain in the N-V side of the mountain Ceahlau.
If you are going to follow the road from Bicaz to Poiana Teiului you’ll first see a big rock of 20 m high, then you’ll get to the village Ceahlau and finally you’ll reach Durau, a place famous for its fresh air and the natural beauty of the scenery.
Because of the peaceful atmosphere and the clean fresh air the Durau resort represents a perfect place to relax and lose some stress. This place is recommended for the healthy benefits of its air on stress, physical and intellectual breakdowns or anemia and for its sky slope.
Located at the foot of the pine forest and surrounded by gorgeous scenery the Durau resort has many accommodation possibilities both for the winter season and for the summer. In the last years more and more tourists come here for the fresh air. This is also the starting point in hiking routes on Ceahlau Mountain, to Dochia chalet and Fantanele Chalet.
The routes that take you on the mountain Ceahlau are properly bookmarked and represent the main attraction point in this area. You can climb the mountain all the way to the top and reach the peaks Ocolasul Mare and Toaca or you can see the Duruitoarea Fall. Also on top of the mountain you can visit the monastery that was built there in 1993.
In Durau we can also find the monastery Durau, built in 1835 and painted by Nicolae Tonitza with colors diluted in wax.
