We are sure you heard about the Flying Arena nearby. If not, this is your chance to see it. Try not to miss it!

Flying site

The Flying Arena is formed by The South Carpathians, The Sub Carpathians and the spectacular Brasov Depression. https://paragliding-romania.ro/

https://paragliding-romania.ro/bunloc/

Brasov area offers many possibilities for flying: big XC tasks with flying above the Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), exploring the highest peaks in Bucegi Mountains (2505 m), soaring the Piatra Mare Mountain (1800 m), or spreading out into the Brasov Depression, which works (in spring) almost like Cauca Valley in Roldanillo.
