About Poiana Brasov Mountain Resort
Founded in 1895, Poiana Brasov was first a tourist district of Brasov. In 1906, Poiana was designated as a winter resort, and three years later the first ski competition in Romania was held here. In 1951 Poiana hosted The International Winter Games for students. Nowadays the resort resembles more a town than a ski resort with its luxurious hotels, fantastic apartments and classy restaurants.
Poiana is one of the most frequented resorts in Romania, mostly because of its modern sports infrastructure, including an artificial skating ring, sport fields and riding centers. In Poiana Brasov there is an Olympic ski-track and 9 downhill and slalom runs (the biggest number of ski slopes in the country) covering over 20 km. One of the advantages of the resort is the artificial snow making installation which enables the most passionate skiers to practice their favorite sport from autumn until spring. Another attraction you will find here is the opportunity to ride in a horse-drawn sleigh.
