Your Royal Holiday

Hilly area

In the county of Prahova, the hills have heights from  300-400m to 800-900m. 


The southern boundary of the Carpathian hills has a tortuous course, but  is well defined by bumps. Starting in the west of the county, from Filipeştii de Pădure, they retreat northwards next to the Prahova river, right up to Băneşti, making way for the plain. From here it is heading south-east, by Băicoi, Țintea, Blejoi, Pleașa, Bucov, Valea Călugărească, Urlați, Ceptura and Gura Vadului. If between Bănești and Urlaţi, the last hills are shorter (300-400m) and are presenting  to the river Teleajen as small isolated knolls,  at east of Urlaţi they ascend to over 400m and constitute towards the plain a continuous front of heights.

 

Within the Carpathian hills,  Prahova, Teleajenului and Doftanei valleys are presented as true aisles with a length of 1-3 km, showing well-developed terraces, as those from Câmpina, Breaza, Brebu.

 

These terraces have played a significant role in the development of the settlements, providing a flat terrain, safe from flooding and shallow water and facilitating the construction of the communication lines.

 

In the hilly area of Prahova County you can meet particular flora and fauna, this area not being affected by the intensive agriculture. You can see pastures with many special species of flowers and birds. In this area you can walk on two tourist roads: the Wine Road and the Fruit road, where you can taste the "elixir of the gods", wine and plum brandy, jam and apple pie while visiting the vineyards or the orchards.
