Busteni – It is located on the Prahova Valley, at the foot of the Bucegi Mountains, which have a maximum altitude of 2,505 m.
Surrounded by the peaks of Caraiman and Costila, Busteni is a small resort ideal for walks in the Bucegi Mountains. The town itself pales in comparison to Sinaia and is as crowded as Predealul by the busy road that runs right through its centre. The main attraction, the Cezar Petrescu Memorial Museum, is a 20th century peasant-style building on the northern edge of town.
The starting point for many trails, most of them well signposted, is the top of the cable car line. A popular and easy trail leads to the Urlatoarea waterfall, while a more difficult one leads to the much-photographed geological formations called Sphinx and Babele.
