The 35th Danubia Adria Symposium on Advances in Experimental Mechanics will be held in Sinaia, one of the most beautiful mountain resorts in Romania, located 125 km north of Bucharest in a breathtaking mountain scenery.

Sinaia is the former residence of the Romanian kings and bears a holy name, that of Sinai Mountain, which was given for the first time to the homonymous monastery in the 17th century.

The resort is situated at an altitude between 798 … 1055 m, on the south-eastern slope of the Bucegi Mountains, along with the valley of the Prahova river.

The Peles and Pelisor Castles and the Sinaia monastery are the most important tourist attractions in Sinaia. The Sinaia cable car offers a wonderful journey up to 2000m altitude from where one can admire a great panorama of the Bucegi mountains and the valley of the river Prahova.
