Situated at an altitude of 1,600 meters, Rânca offers visitors fresh air, old fir forests, vast meadows and spectacular landscapes.
Initially, Rânca had six cabins with five rooms each, built in 1930 by the “Gilortul” People’s Bank of Novaci. Nowadays, the area has expanded to include cottages, pensions, and hotels that stretch from Mount Plopu to the base of Păpușa Peak, offering hundreds of accommodation options for tourists.
