Full description
Start your trip with a stop in Sinaia, also known as the Pearl of the Carpathians, home to Peles Castle, one of the most beautiful in the world, an architectural masterpiece and the former summer palace of the Romanian royal family. Drive on to Bran to visit the famous medieval castle built as a fortress, Dracula's Castle, for the citizens of Brasov with a view to defend the city. Surrounded by an aura of mystery and legend, perched high atop a 200-foot-high rock, Bran Castle owes its fame to its imposing towers and turrets as well as to the myth created around Bram Stoker's Dracula. After enjoying a private guided tour inside for your small group only, you will have some free time in the souvenir market. After a short drive, reach the city of Brasov filled with splendid medieval and Gothic architecture with its wealth of historical attractions. Here, you will enjoy a walking tour of the old city. After some free time to explore some more, you will start driving back to Bucharest.
