Though it's perched on the eastern edge of craggy Piatra Craiului National Park, Zărnesţi shares none of its drama. This low-key little town is a useful base for day-hikes into the park, or to circle your wagons before a longer trek; otherwise there's no reason to hang around. Some 7km east is Libearty Bear Sanctuary, though this is just as easy to visit on an excursion from Braşov or Bran (plus transfers and guided tours are easier to find from there than Zărnesţi).
