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 visited Bucharest in April 2015. The city has a complicated history, but unique if you get to think about it … Great guide and great tour. You must take this communist tour in Bucharest to understand the city and its history.

I chose this tour due to my fascination about Dracula but I could not find him there as I wished. Though, the castles and the citadels impressed me a lot and it was easy to understand why Bram Stoker chose Transylvania for his book. The landscapes were amazing, Romania has for sure something very wild and mysterious with all those wooded mountains and strong medieval constructions. A nice touch was including the tour Iulia Hasdeu Castle, not a medieval one but with a beautiful-sad story which impressed us all. Maybe in the future the authorities will consider giving Dracula more credit than some cheap souvenirs as there are many generations that grew up with Dracula stories. At least, I returned home with great memories and great photos from Transylvania and now it will be much easier to tell my son stories about Dracula actually showing him real images from the Count’ real home.
Very good tour!
Our guide gave us a very interesting tour of the city, with a lot of historical facts thrown in. His knowledge of the city and of the history that has shaped it was quite extensive. On top of that, he was polite and accommodating. Highly recommended.
