Campulung Muscel Heroes Mausoleum from Valea Mare-Pravăţ, known as the Mausoleum of Mateiaş, is dedicated to the heroes of World War I, 1916-1918. It is situated on E574 (DN 73), 11 km distance from Braşov to Câmpulung, on an imposing promontory, situated on the southern slope of Mount Mateiaş.

Here there are deposited, in 31 crypts, the remains of over 2,300 Romanian soldiers.
