Escape the urban bustle of Bucharest for the day to discover the legends and treasures of Transylvania. Wander through the Gothic chambers and turrets of Bran Castle, nicknamed ‘Dracula’s Castle’ thanks to its spooky atmosphere and ties to Vlad the Impaler, and then feel like you’ve stepped into a fairy tale on a tour of splendid Peles Castle, the former royal residence of Romanian kings. Finally, explore one of Transylvania’s most well-preserved medieval villages on a walking tour of Brasov.

Start your day trip with Peles Castle (inside visit), set in the scenic mountain resort of Sinaia, also called the Pearl of the Carpathians. Tour the Romanian royal family’s former summer residence, which showcases a magnificent palace in the German Renaissance style. Built at the foot of the mountains between 1873 and 1914 by Carol I, the first Romanian king, the palace is considered one of the most beautiful of its kind in Europe.

Next is the town of Brasov, previously known as Kronstadt. Its well-kept historical center filled with centuries-old homes connected by small streets paved with cobblestone retains its German medieval charm. Your walking tour of this lovely town starts from the main square, which features the Gothic Black Church (Biserica Neagră – inside visit), old City Hall, watch towers, walls around the former citadel, and the narrowest street in Europe.

Final stop at Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula’s Castle (inside visit). The imposing construction, originally built as a fortress at the former border between Wallachia and Transylvania, looks out over a valley from its strategic position. The function of this medieval landmark is evident through its grandiose towers as well as its winding narrow staircases and passages. The Gothic appearance adds to the allure while you learn about its infamous ruler, Vlad the Impaler, and its legendary vampire.

Conclude your tour with return transport to your hotel in Bucharest.

One of the highest roads in Romania, the Transfagarasan Road has been called by the Top Gear presenters as "the best road in the world". If you visit Romania, a ride on this scenic mountain road is, therefore, a must. Located 3 hours North of Bucharest, a trip on the Transfagarasan will provide you with some of the most spectacular landscapes in Europe, a look into the fascinating rural life in Romania and into the country's spirituality and history.

The journey starts early morning in Bucharest heading northwards to the former capital of the medieval Wallachian principality, Curtea de Arges. Situated in a picturesque landscape, this is one of the most historically significant places in Romania. Curtea de Arges is the home of an old Princely Court, dated back to the 14th century and a famous monastery, with a very interesting yet gruesome legend. 

After the visit, travel toward the Carpathian Mountains stopping to admire the Vidraru Dam, one of the largest in Romania. Finally, enjoy a memorable ride along the picturesque Transfagarasan, declared by Top Gear, "the best road in the world".  Built high up in the Fagaras Mountains, the road stretches for 62 miles (100 km), offering breathtaking views. 

Stops will be made on the way to admire the scenery, take photos and simply enjoy the strong and healthy mountain air before heading back to Bucharest, which will be reached in the evening.

Itinerary: Bucharest - Targoviste - Curtea de Arges - Poenari - Bucharest

The day trip will start from your hotel where you will be picked up by your guide who will drive 80 km to the town of Targoviste, where you will visit the Princely Court (inside visit) from where Vlad Dracula ruled over Wallachia. Here you will find the imposing ruins of the feudal residence of Dracula and his family of rulers, climb to the top of the high Chindia Tower, visit the old mysterious Orthodox Church to understand more about religion in the time of Vlad and the spooky cellars of the establishment while imagining how it all looked like centuries ago in the bloody middle ages.

From here you will head to the beautiful town of Curtea de Arges, the other important Princely Court of Wallachia in medieval days and discover their ruins, as well as two old and superb churches: the Princely Church (inside visit) dating back to the 13th century and the Monastery of Curtea De Arges (inside visit) that hides a scary story about human sacrifice. 

The next stop is further up the road, up in the Carpathian Mountains on the banks of the river Arges, mentioned in the novel Dracula, where you will visit the Poenari Fortress (inside visit). This 15th century stronghold standing atop the cliff was built under the command of Vlad Dracula and it was a place that went through a lot of bloody episodes, all of which you will hear during your stay here. One important fact you must know about Dracula: he was very fit as in order to reach the fortress you will have to climb over 1400 steps.
