    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Triumph Arch, Piata Arcul de Triumf, Bucharest Romania

    Meet with your guide and set out for your Transylvania trip.

    Stop At: Peles Castle, Str. Pelesului 2, Sinaia 106100 Romania

    Start your day trip with Peles Castle (inside visit), set in the scenic mountain resort of Sinaia, also called the Pearl of the Carpathians. Tour the Romanian royal family’s former summer residence, which showcases a magnificent palace in the German Renaissance style. Built at the foot of the mountains between 1873 and 1914 by Carol I, the first Romanian king, the palace is considered one of the most beautiful of its kind in Europe.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Brasov Historical Center, Piazza Sfatului, Brasov Romania

    Next is the town of Brasov, previously known as Kronstadt. Its well-kept historical center filled with centuries-old homes connected by small streets paved with cobblestone retains its German medieval charm. Your walking tour of this lovely town starts from the main square, which features the Gothic Black Church (BisericaNeagră – inside visit), old City Hall, watch towers, walls around the former citadel, and the narrowest street in Europe.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), Str. General Traian Mosoiu nr. 24, Bran 507025 Romania

    Final stop at Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula’s Castle (inside visit). The imposing construction, originally built as a fortress at the former border between Wallachia and Transylvania, looks out over a valley from its strategic position. The function of this medieval landmark is evident through its grandiose towers as well as its winding narrow staircases and passages. The Gothic appearance adds to the allure while you learn about its infamous ruler, Vlad the Impaler, and its legendary vampire.

    Conclude your tour with return transport to your hotel in Bucharest.

    Duration: 2 hours

    I was only in Bucharest for a few days and wanted to get out of the city and 'Dracula's Castle' had always been a curiosity. To be honest Peles Castle was far and away the better of the two and I recognise they were built...More

    An informative trip to Romania´s past. Peles castle is worth to see it in the beautiful surrounding of Romania´s mountains. Bran castle was a bit overcrowded with a lot of steps and narrow ways but it is definitely cool to find out more about Romanian...More
