Description - What to expect

Your Bran Castle, Peles Castle & Brasov day trip starts with a convenient pick-up from your hotel in Bucharest and a drive through the scenic Prahova Valley to Sinaia the so-called "Pearl of the Carpathians” due to the beauty of its natural setting and the elegance of its architecture. Visit the fantastic Peles Castle, one of the most beautiful in the world, an architectural masterpiece, and the former summer palace of the Romanian royal family. Then head to the 300 years old Sinaia Monastery, the historic soul of the city of Sinaia and precious monument of Romanian Art.

Continue your tour with a drive 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 atmosphere of mystery and legend, rested 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. While the association with Dracula is insufficient at best, the castle continues to hold a strong attraction for all fans of the Count. After the visit, you will enjoy time at leisure in the souvenir market.

After a short drive, you will reach the city of Brasov. Fringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains and dazzling with Gothic, baroque, and renaissance architecture, as well as a wealth of historical attractions, Brasov is one of the most visited places in Romania. Enjoy a walking tour through the old town center, including the Black Church, the Council Square, the Hircher House, and the baroque-style buildings from the Austro-Hungarian times. After some free time to explore some more, you will start driving back to Bucharest late afternoon.
