What you can expect

Itinerary: Bucharest – Sinaia – Brasov – Bran – Bucharest

Firstly, your day trip from Bucharest begins with the Peles Castle (inside visit) from the mountain resort of Sinaia. This German style castle built as a summer residence for Romania’s first king is set in a scenic landscape at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains and surrounded by lush forests.

Explore the treasures hidden inside one of Europe’s finest castles while also discovering the fascinating tales about Romania’s royal family.

Secondly you will enjoy the splendid Transylvanian city of Brasov with its well-kept medieval old town. While here you will have a walking tour in the historical center with its defending walls, watch tower and the narrow cobblestone streets lined up with centuries old houses.
Besides this, you will admire one of the largest churches in Europe – the Gothic Black Church built in the 14th century by German settlers.

Finally, you will stop at the fascinating Bran Castle, best known as Dracula’s Castle (inside visit).
Standing atop a cliff, this imposing medieval structure was used for centuries as a fortress and customs point between the regions of Transylvania and Wallachia. Significatly, the castle was home during the Middles Ages to Vlad the Impaler.

Since Vlad was a cruel 15th century ruler from Wallachia, he was the main inspiration for the vampire in the novel “Dracula”. That is why the steep towers, winding narrow passages and staircases here create an atmosphere of mystery.

Your day in Transylvania concludes with the return trip by car in Bucharest.
