Day 1
BUCHAREST – SINAIA – BRAN – BRASOV (4h30min drive))

The tour of Transylvania starts in the morning, in front of your hotel in Bucharest.

In Sinaia, located at the foothills of the Carpathians, you’ll get to see the local monastery, the oldest building in the town. Further on, you’ll be literally overwhelmed by the splendor of Peles Castle*. Built at the request of Carol I, the first king of Romania, Peles Castle is considered one of the most beautiful castles in Europe. The amazing architecture and exquisite interiors are matched only by the beauty of the Carpathian Mountains.

The famous castle of Bran is the most visited tourist landmark in Romania. Built about 800 years ago when Transylvania was controlled by Hungarian kings, the castle became a major attraction in the ’60s when it became known as “Dracula’s Castle.” You’ll get to admire its beautiful rooms renovated by Queen Marie of Romania, and you’ll be told the story of Dracula.

Before going to Brasov you’ll enjoy a walk in a mountain village where you can admire the amazing landscape and the daily rural life.

Accommodation in Brasov: 4-star hotel

* Peles Castle is closed on Mondays between May 16th and September 15th. For the rest of the year, it is closed on both Mondays and Tuesdays. Each year the castle is closed for the entire month of November.  Pelisor Castle or the Cantacuzino Castle in Busteni may be used as alternatives.

Day 2
BRAN – PREJMER – BRASOV – BUCHAREST (3h3omin drive)

You’ll start the day with Brasov, a city built by the German colonists about 750 years ago. It boasts wonderful medieval architecture. Surrounded by massive walls, towers and gates, the city was also protected against different invasions by the steep hills of the mountains. Located on an important trade route, the city developed quickly, and the residents built one of the most impressive Gothic churches between Vienna and Istanbul, known today as the Black Church**.

The Transylvania tour continues with the fortified church of Prejmer*, a fine example of the German fortresses built 800 years ago. The UNESCO site of Prejmer boasts the best preserved fortified church in Transylvania. The church, the oldest building, is surrounded by more than 250 rooms, massive towers and walls.

The tour will end with the mysterious Snagov Monastery. Probably built for the first time in the 14th century, the present church, located on a beautiful island, dates back to the 16th century. Today, the Snagov Monastery is famous throughout the world thanks to the personage of Vlad the Impaler, a great historical figure for Romanians, while for foreigners is the infamous vampire known as Dracula.

In the afternoon you’ll be transferred to Bucharest where this one-day trip ends.

* Between November and April, the Prejmer fortified church is closed on Sundays and Mondays. It can be replaced with the Rasnov fortress.

** During the cold months, between November and April, the Black Church will be seen only from outside.

End of the tour.
