The Bucegi Sfinx


It is placed at an altitude of 2216 m, at a 10 minute walk from the Babele. The first photo of the Great Bucegi Sfinx was probably taken in about the year 1900. This photo was taken from a front position, not from a lateral one, as it appears in the usual pictures nowadays. This way it was only named in the year 1936. The image of the sfinx appeared when the rock, having an 8 m height and a 12 m width, was watched from a certain angle.


The man-shaped stone is looking to the sky. The megalite has its clearest outline on 21st November, at the time the sun goes down.
