Slanic is 30 km from Ploiesti and the road is in good condition. It goes through numerous villages which slows down the trip.

From Teisani you can either go north to Cheia and Brasov or go south in nearby Valeni where there is more shopping, restaurants, N. Iorga Museum. You can also get from Slanic directly to Valea Prahovei taking west on a secondary road from Varbilau, the village 5 km south of Salnic.(through Livadea, Alunis and ending in Brebu-Doftana where it joins DN1)
