About Azuga

It is a preferred destination for winter sports-enthusiasts, and it is one of the country's largest ski resorts.

However, Azuga is not all about skiing. It is also great for mountain excursions, paintball, team-building, summer sports, mountain biking, alpinism, and hunting.

Azuga's biggest attraction is Sorica, which is the first ski runway in the country approved by FIS (Federatia Internationala de Ski - International Ski Federation), and the longest ski runway in Romania.

Less said, Azuga is a typical mountain town that offers typical mountain attractions.
