The climate of Transylvanian Alps (Romania)
The Transylvanian Alps consist of the Carpathian mountain range
stretching from west to east in Romania and has altitudes up to 2,500
meters. The Transylvanian Alps have a continental climate with cold
and snowy winters making this an ideal winter sports area. However,
large areas of this mountain range are unsuitable for winter sports
because of the rugged landscape and the primeval forests making it
impossible to go skiing. The most popular winter sports areas are
Poiana Brasov, Predeal, Sinaia and the Maramures.
