The Centre was opened in April 2016. It is administrated by the Administration of the Piatra Craiului National Park. The interior of the Visitor Centre is designed as a loop trail, which once completed provides information on flora, fauna, geology, the ridge area and detritus, caves, local communities and walking trails in the National Park. Exhibition space is designed so as to cause unique emotional experiences to visitors. Because of the interactive way of transmission of text and image information by Kinect monitors and LED technology, lights and sounds, tourists can learn about specific elements of the National Park. The monitors provide information on various topics that are presented ...as short films, a collection of pictures and puzzles. Also at the Centre they can view a traditional sheep farm, cave formation, geological features and a 3D layout of the National Park where you can design maps on different themes (tourist routes, types of soil, habitats, types of property, internal zoning of the national park etc.) Trail Visitor Centre can be discovered by both disabled and blind people. The latter can learn, besides experiences due to sounds, on billboards written in Braille.
