The city of Ploiești, residence of Prahova County, is situated 60 km away from Bucharest, on exceptional geographic coordinates: it is crossed by the 26th degrees meridian, which divides the European continent in two approximately equal parts, and the northern part stretches almost near the 45th degrees parallel, elements which determine the temperate - continental climate.

Ploiești developed within a belt railway and it is a very important rail hub, providing connections to Bucharest, Transylvania and Moldova. Ploiești is a significant junction of national, county and municipal roads. The road network is radial and located not only on the territory of the city, but also of the periurban cities.
