Full description
Stop at the Libearty Brown Bear Sanctuary, which is the largest of its kind in the world. Money raised from tickets and donations contribute to the welfare of the animals. See the impressive medieval Rasnov Fortress. Its main attraction is the panoramic view over the Piatra Craiului Mountains and Brasov Depression. The 11-hour program continues to the famous Bran Castle, better known as Dracula’s Castle. Built in 1377-1382 as a fortress, it became famous after Bram Stoker’s Dracula was published and then made into a movie.

Nice experience

Best of all ... an excellent guide and perfect professional and be able to see the bears up close and be able to contribute so that they continue to protect them, the worst ... the exploitation of Bran Castle, we entered crammed, 100 in 100, we did not fit inside the castle, shoves and scary queues inside the castle rooms, unable to appreciate anything

A super father experience. Better than I expected. Learning from wildlife specifically from bears is a very good thing. Visiting the Castle and knowing more about the history of Romania is great and Ramse was spectacular at all times.

Amazing experience

This trip was amazing and to see the bears being looked after so well. Road leading up is very bumpy though
