The Sureanu Mountains, also known as the Sebes Mountains, have recently become a point of interest for winter sports aficionados thanks to the opening of a ski resort aptly dubbed the “Little Switzerland”, situated at an altitude of about 2000 meters at the border between Alba County and Hunedoara County.
But this spectacular mountain range, extending over 1585 square kilometers, while dazzling when covered in blinding white snow, welcomes visitors at any time of the year, luring them with colorful meadows, refreshing springs that remain ice-cold even at the height of summer, spectacular caves, emerald lakes, stunning gorges, and the ruins of no less than seven Dacian citadels – including Sarmisegetusa Regia – and three medieval fortifications
Sureanu Ski Resort
Located at 1650m altitude, Sureanu Ski Resort features 10 slopes, cumulating 11km. The landscape is just fabulous and given the remote location of the resort, you will get the chance to enjoy the wild charm of the Carpathian Mountains.
Oasa Monastery is a monastery for monks, located in a wonderful site just nearby Oasa Lake. There are currently over 20 monks living in the monastery, some of them are foreigners who gave up their comfortable lifestyle and jobs in the western world in exchange for the peace of mind they claim they have found on top of Sureanu Mountains.
