Enjoy a winter holiday in the magical land of Transylvania!
Transylvania Live invites you to spend 8 wonderful days in Poiana Brasov (1030m-1750m resort altitude), the best ski resort in Central-Eastern Europe. Situated at the foot of Postavaru Mountain (altitude of 1803m), it is surrounded by dense pinewood forests in a magnificent, mountainous natural setting. Poiana Brasov is the most sophisticated resort in Romania with a well established sports infrastructure; it boasts a whole host of activities, such as ice-skating, field sports, horse riding, bowling, swimming in Olympic sized pools and far more. The piste has an Olympic ski-run, 9 downhill and slalom runs (the largest number of ski slopes in the country) covering over 20 km and 9km of marked cross-country ski-runs.

The Ana Ski School is world renowned as one of the best ski schools in Europe and North America! After a day on the slopes you can enjoy continental or traditional Romanian cuisines accompanied by traditional folk singers. Further options include horse-drawn sleigh rides, lively bars, clubs, discos, indoor swimming pools, saunas, massages, and fitness centres.
