The impressive edifice dates back to 1377. Queen Maria of Romania, the niece of Queen Victoria of Great Britain turned the castle into a beautiful summer residence. Close to the castle, there is a shrine that is set in the wall of a mountain which once sheltered her heart. Lunch can be enjoyed in Bran village.
