Description

The day begins in Bucharest with a road trip to our first destination, Sinaia, a small resort town in the Carpathian Mountains. In order to get there, we’ll pass through the scenic Prahova Valley – Romania’s key destination for winter sports lovers.

The first stop on the tour is the splendid Peleș Castle, which was built by the first king of Romania, Carol I of Hohenzollern, in the 19th century. It served as the summer residence for the Romanian royal family for several years.

We’ll then visit one of the most famous castles in the world, Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle. Dating back to the 13th century, it was built on top of an older wooden castle by the Saxons of Transylvania.

Afterwards, we’ll continue on to the city of Brașov, which is a popular Romanian tourist destination. It was founded by Teutonic Knights in 1211 and exudes a distinct medieval ambiance. Walking through the Council Square, we’ll reach the Old Town Hall in the heart of the city.

I spent one amazing day with Tudor seeing the most beautiful scenery in the Carpathians. Prahova Valley made quite an impression and from the beginning I saw that we stepped on the right foot.

A wonderful guide and a superb introduction to Romania. Must come back in the winter and in the summer. Romania is a remarkable country to explore. Thank you Tudor!

If you are in Bucharest and you’d like to have a quick overview of the city, I would recommend taking this tour, but don’t forget your passport. You’ll need it to visit the House of People, house of Ceausescu. It was quite unique to see this impressive architecture built upon a church, a hospital, a few other institutions and dozens of workshops and factories. It is certainly breathtaking how such a monster could be built in the 1980s.

The tour gave me great insight into the city of Bucharest during a very short stay. Bucharest is quite a unique place with some rough edges but a very interesting and beautiful city in some parts. This tour gives you a very good introduction to further explorations.

Very passionate, informative guide. Catalin answered to all of our questions on how life was in communist times compared to the times we live now and what happened in 1989. Highly recommended!
