Description

This day trip will start from Bucharest with a road trip to our first destination, Sinaia. Sinaia is a small resort town in the Carpathian Mountains, and 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. It was built in the 19th century, and it served as the summer residence for the Romanian Royal Family for several years.

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

Afterwards, we’ll continue on to the city of Brașov, which is a popular tourist destination in Romania. 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. We’ll then visit the Black Church – the biggest religious building of its kind between Vienna and Istanbul.

Great tour
Our tour guide was punctual and was very knowledgeable We recommend this tour company for sure They are able to accommodate us within very short notice which we appreciated Pele Castle was amazing, Bram Castle was phenomenal Love Brasov
Amazing!
Couldn't have asked for a better day trip! Our tour guide Stefan was absolutely outstanding, he was very knowledgable on all the sites that we visited. Also, although one of the sites were closed they made sure to accommodate us with an alternate option. If you have a small group of two or three people this is exactly what you want. It was very well organized and we felt like we were able to see and get the most out of a day trip. Highly recommend this day tour!
I knew a little about Peles Castle, not much, but this made my experience so much better. All that architecture and the stories that our guide Andrei told us made it such a rich experience. The guide explained so nicely and was so helpful all the time. I so glad that we went on this trip.
