The resort town Predeal, famous for winter sports, has become more and more required for the organisation of sports competitions. The most recent ones include the National Fencing Championship in which famous international sportsmen participated. 27 sports clubs, that is a total of 167 sportsmen, entered the Finals of the National Senior and Team Super League Fencing Championships. The best performer was the team of Steaua Bucharest which obtained 8 from the 10 trophies at stake and made impression both during individual and team competitions. The prizes were granted by the City Hall of Predeal.
The Festival of the Mountains
?Predeal is a perfect place to organise national, but also international events. In this regard, we are continuously working to offer the best possible conditions. The most recent one was the Festival of the Mountains and consisted in several activities: book release having the mountains as topic, previews of painting, sculpture, graphic and artistic photography, a cultural-artistic and ambient music show and on field competitions: moto-show, exhibition of Romanian shepherd dogs, mountain rescue simulation carried out by lifeguard service in Predeal and mountain climbing,? says Mr. Ionel Goidescu, Mayor of Predeal.
Off-road and moto-show
Both during the summer and winter time trips itineraries are being organised within competitions regarding field orientation and trail recognition. Leaving Predeal, passing by Paraul Rece river and reaching the Notches of Rasnoavei, the mountain offers excellent possibilities for climbing, off-road races and moto-show. These kinds of events attract many tourists, some of them preferring to climb rocks for a fee, assisted by trainers. The adrenaline is increasing, the sensations are great, the height is frightening. This is why those who try to do climbing once, will do it again and make a hobby of it.
The Mayor, Mr. Ionel Goidescu says that the Local Council had already allotted significant funds for the preparations of the winter season in Predeal: ?We are working at the arrangement of the ski area, the snow cannons are being checked, measures are taken to inform tourists about the access in high mountain areas and the risks to which they expose, some tourist trails are restored and contacts maintained with the cable transport and hotel network providers. This way we can offer perfect conditions for the tourists to practice winter sports and also a variety of events. We are waiting them in Predeal.?
