Azuga is a small ski resort situated between the mountain ranges of Prahova county in Muntenia, Romania.
The town is situated at the foothils of Bucegi mountains and it is home to the longest ski run in Romania named Sorica. Another major landmark in Azuga is the beer factory brewing the Azuga beer.
It's a typical mountain town between Clabucetul Predealului (1586 m maximum altitude) in the north and west and Baiului and Garbovei Mountains in the south and east with Cazacu Peak (1753 m) and Stevia Peak (1901 m) the highest points.
The two ski runs are situated in the southeast part of Azuga. Both of them are enhanced with cable chairs and cable skis. More recently another ski run has been developed named Cazacu right next to the Sorica ski run. Cazacu itself has been blessed by its makers with a cable car installation and artificial snow making machines.
Azuga is situated on on the Prahova Valley in Prahova County, Muntenia, Romania, 12 km away from Sinaia, 6 km away from Predeal and 4 km away from Busteni at the foothils of Bucegi Mountains at an altitude of over 1100 m. The distance to Poiana Brasov is 38 km and to Bucharest 147 km.
Getting to & around
Azuga is easily accessible by road through the European road #60 (known as National road #1 as well; E60 or DN1 in short). Reaching the resort by train is not a problem either with the main railway line between Bucharest and Brasov passing through town.
The closest airport is Bucharest's "Henri Coanda", the biggest in Romania, 135 km south of Azuga. Brasov is closer, only 36 km away, but it unfortunately lacks an international airport for the moment.
