Since every trip to Romania begins with a flight into Bucharest, take a day or two to explore the capital. The Parliament building is a site certainly worth seeing. It is the second largest building on earth after the Pentagon, but cost so much to build they could not finish its interior! There are also great views from the top out over the city.
Most of the best splitboarding here is in relative close proximity. Based on your final destination there are a few train lines you might take, some of which let you off on the southern side and some of which let you off on the northern slopes of the mountain.
If you’re feeling adventurous enough book a one way ticket to the northern flank and splitboard from hut-to-hut back through to the southern side, before returning via train to Bucharest!
During the winter, the Romanian highlands are quite cold, with average daily temperatures between -1ºC and -4ºC. These tend to decrease the higher up in elevation you go. Snow is not uncommon, but also not frequent, meaning there should be plenty of powder, but lots of sunny days too.
Any trip to Romania will likely begin with a flight into Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport (OTP). You can get here via a direct flight from most major European airports. From here, it is easy and scenic to take a train up into the Carpathian mountains and on to your final destination.
