Piatra Craiului Hidden Treasures • Adventure

Piatra Craiului Massif was declared as natural reserve in 1938 due to the unique character of the massif, landscape beauty and rare species like Garofita Pietrei Craiului (Dianthus callizonus) – endemic to Piatra Craiului National Park, Edelweiss (Leontopodium) or Sangele voinicului (Nigritella nigra and Nigritella rubra). A famous Romanian mountaineer called Piatra Craiului a mountain for life-time with one day routes.
