Busteni, the city of legends!


Busteni is a town in the mountains of central Romania.  It is situated in Prahova County, which is part of the region of Wallachia (Muntenia).  In addition to being a popular ski area, it's well known as the site of Heroes Peak, a cross which sits atop nearby Caraiman Peak in the Bucegi Mountains.  The cross was built in the 1920's to commemorate Romania's massive losses in World War I, in which Romania fought on the Entente side.  The monument is highly visible from virtually anywhere in Busteni and is a major tourist attraction.
