Is it possible to see the Transfagarasan Highway, Bran Castle and Bear Sanctuary in one day?

Answer the question

6 answers

It depends on the day of the week, but most likely it is very hard to impossible, especially if you start your journey from Bucharest. You can see Bran and the Bear Sanctuary (make sure you have an appointment), or Transfagarasan and The real Castle of Vlad Tepes - Poienari castle, or you can choose other attractions from this blog:: https://fixtravel.ro/romania-in-3-days/.

From the map, only the trip between the 3 locations will take around 5 hours. It depends on where you will be staying. If you will leave from Bucharest, it will not be possible, because the trip from Bucharest to that area takes around 3 hours. So, you will have to stay around Bran, for example, in order to be able to see them in one day.
Have a nice trip!

It depends a lot on when you're planning to go. On a weekend, I'd say no.
