The Ice Hotel

Surrounded by ice at 2000 m altitude stay

The first time they built the ice hotel in the winter of 2005/2006 and now this place has become very well known, as are the small ice church, which stands next to it. Annually not only the fact that all the rooms, including a bar, built entirely of ice attracts many visitors to Bâlea / Bulea, but also the breathtaking views of Transylvania.
