Day 2: Visiting Bucharest

Your journey starts in Bucharest, the 500 year old capital of Romania with a short panoramic sightseeing tour of the core of the city. Between the two World Wars, the city’s elegant architecture and the high cultural life of its elite gave Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris”. The city has increased its position as one of the most intriguing tourist destinations with its feverish history, interesting buildings, legends, native restaurants, shopping centers, malls, streets with charming boutiques, warm atmosphere and welcoming people. Now, the Old Town has been revived and is packed with boutique shops, restaurants, bars, clubs and cafes, beyond the renowned museums and old churches. A perfect chance to relax and enhance your knowledge, this 7 day tour takes you north, to the famous Carpathian Mountains. Your unique insight into the time of kings starts with a couple of hours drive through Prahova Valley. Pass an invisible threshold to Transylvania, the so called “Land Across the Forest”. Lunch and accommodation at the hotel in Brasov. Afternoon at leisure. Overnight in Brasov.

Day 3: Visiting Brasov & Dracula's Castle

Breakfast at the hotel. A morning ride from Brasov through the mountains will take you to the fabled Bran Castle, widely known as Dracula’s Castle, built at the beginning of the 13th century by Knight Dietrich of the Teutonic Order. Between 1920-1930, the Castle was used by the Romanian royal family, namely by Queen Maria (a niece of Queen Victoria of England). Only in 1958 Bran Castle was turned into a museum and opened to visitors ready to roam through the halls, narrow staircases and inner courts, willing to hear the legends and eager to find out the connection between this on the top of a rock castle and Bram Stoker’s character, Dracula. Enjoy lunch at a local native restaurant where you’ll enjoy the exquisite flavours of the Romanian cuisine.
