Full description
After meeting with your guide in Bran village, your castle tour will start. After a short introduction about the surrounding area, you will walk inside the castle and begin your journey into the past. Bran Castle has more than 50 rooms, but most of them closed between 2006 and 2009 when Queen Maria’s grandchildren inherited it from the Romanian government. There are still 19 of them currently open for the general public, as well as a secret passage.

Your guide will provide you with an in-depth tour covering the history of the fortress, including many legends and vampires. You will also hear stories about Count Dracula, and the implication of Queen Maria of Romania in the restoration of this fantastic place.

You can encounter the guard's room, the queen’s apartment, the king’s apartment, the catellan’s office, the music room, and the apartments of Princess Ileana and Prince Nicolae. Your tour will end in the court yard by the well, which sits right beside the time tunnel which you will be welcome to walk through afterwards.
