Fodor's Expert Review Casino Sinaia
No longer a working casino but a conference center, this is nonetheless an impressive structure, commissioned and built in 1913 by King Carol I, who died just a year later. It's a grand building and, provided no private events are being held, tours are given every 40 minutes. Sometimes the docents speak English, but if not there may be a local on the tour who will translate for you. Even without understanding the guide, the building's interior is a spectacular sight, particularly its more than 500 pieces of art, including works by Bogdan Mihai Radu, Vana Cornel, Calin-Raul Anton, and Rares Kerekes. The casino, which has an upscale café on the ground floor, is in Dimitrie Ghica Park, where there's a skating rink.
