Ploiesti Travel Guide



Ploesti is the main center of Romania's oil industry. Europe's petro­leum industry began there in 1857. During World War II, costly low-level Allied bombing raids were conducted to cut off this vital source of fuel for Germany's war machine. Just north of Ploesti is the lovely Prahova Valley with its picturesque mountain resorts and lovely lakes.
