Welcome to Brasov! It is winter and we like it very much when we have snow. We invite you to a tour through the perfect places for a snowballs fight, sleighing and skiing. Some are right in the old center, others through Șchei, and others in Poiana Brașov. You have to choose. And if you are not equipped properly, let's recommend 2, 3 shops, to enjoy the maximum of winter, regardless of temperature.
Let's start with the equipment. If you want to move quickly and efficiently, we have in the Old Center, near Residence Central Annapolis, a few sports goods stores, from where you can complete your snow suit. Sport Virus is a shop located near the hotel, where you can find Millet, Jack Wolfskin, Devold, Fjallraven, Alpina products. They also have discounts of up to 30% on several products. If you go to Piata Sfatului, is the official S-KARP shop, the first Romanian brand of sports and mountain shoes, accredited and licensed by the world leading manufacturer of VIBRAM soles. Then, on Republicii we have 3 stores: Columbia, The North Face and Himalaya. Special offers and discounts start at 50%. It's worth trying something new this season.
Now let's tell you where to go and try out the new equipment. If you want sleighing, we have several options. It is clear that any hill can become the most cheerful sleighroad. The closest option is in the Livada Poștei: the park behind the County Library can be the ideal place, if you do not have too high demands. If you want something more interesting, you can go up the Drumul Vechi, either from the Livada Poștei, by bus 20 to Poiana Mică, or on foot, from Șchei, and from there take your sled down to Pietrele lui Solomon. It is a very intense experience, along the entire route of the former road that made the car link between the neighborhood of Șchei and Poiana Mică. We also have the official version of Poiana Brașov, the sledging slope near the "Bradul" Slope.
For longer and more complex walks of hicks, you have several routes to choose from. If you want an official map, we recommend the Zenithmaps mobile application, one to find the mountain routes from Brașov, Poiana Brașov and Postăvarul. As well as the Salvamont number, for useful information: + 40-725. 826.668
Let's go to the ski domain in Poiana Brașov. Poiana Brașov is the most famous resort for winter sports in Romania and also an important international tourist center. The resort is at the foot of Postăvarul Mountain, at an altitude of 1030 m, and the highest mountain peak is at 1799 m altitude - Postăvarul Peak. Poiana Brașov has the most dense and modern mountain tourist facilities in the country. The ski slopes exceeds 24 km, being the largest ski area in the country. It has 10 ski slopes with different degrees of difficulty. It is the ideal place to first get on skis, as there are two beginner slopes at low altitude (Stadium - also called baby slope because it is specially designed for children and Brad - an ideal slope for beginners with progressive slopes that allows the teaching process to be carried out under optimal conditions). Poiana Brașov is one of the few places in the country where children can learn to ski on dedicated slopes, separate from adults. Source info: https://taberesicircuite.ro/schiabil-poiana-brasov/

Information about rates, map of the domain and other real-time information on the condition of the slopes can be found here: http://starepartii.brasovcity.ro/en/acasa/
