Due to its location in the center of the country, near the big cities, Bucharest, Brasov, Ploiesti and Targoviste and its easy accessibility, the Bucegi massif is the most visited tourist destination in the Romanian Carpathians, which is why it was named "Alpine Boulevard of Romania".
The diversity of landforms, the geological structure and the altitudinal amplitude between 640 and 2505 m, offer special conditions that favored the installation of a flora as varied as it is valuable, including all large groups of plants.
The forests occupy 65% of the surface of the protected area, the most common being the forests of beech, fir, spruce and the mixture between these species, depending on the altitude.
At the border between the forest and the alpine pastures, which occupies approx. 35% of the Park's surface, there are spruce and larch forests. On the territory of the Park were identified 14 Natural Reserves (Bucșoiu-Mălăiești-Gaura Abrupt, Prahovean Abrupt, Cheile Tătarului, Lăptici Peatland), as well as a number of 46 Natural Monuments (Sphinx, Babele, Urlătoarea Waterfall, Moralului Cave, Ialomița Cave, Rătei Cave, Mălăieștil Horns, Franz Joseph Rocks).
In addition to the natural monuments, it is worth mentioning the Monument of the Heroes (Cross on the Caraiman), a monument erected in memory of the railway heroes who fell on duty during the First World War.
This cross, 33 m high, was built between 1926-1928 by CFR, at the initiative of Princess Maria.
