Full description
The first destination on the list is Bran Castle, a location with a history of more than 6 centuries, more commonly known as Dracula’s Castle. Through the ages, the legends of the castle became stronger than its history, and hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Bran Castle each year, in search of Dracula.

You will then visit a quaint village built more than 1,000 meters high. This land is a true piece of heaven, being surrounded by some of the most important Carpathian mountains, including:  Bucegi, Leaota, Piatra Craiului, and Postavarul.  Next, you will head to the Bats’ Cave, located in the north-west of the Bran platform, at an altitude of approximately 950 meters (3,117 feet). The cave was created by the erosion of the mountain by the Valea cu Cale Creek, and its name is given by the massive bat colonies inside, including some unusual species.

You will take a visit to Fundatica, an area located at the highest altitude of Romania. Here, the fresh mountain air keeps the locals healthy, and the average lifespan of more than 80 years serves as a testimony to this claim.  After a delicious traditional lunch, you will start a trekking journey towards a traditional sheepfold, where you'll see how the sheep are milked and how the local cheese is produced, following methods and traditions passed down through generations.  Lastly, you will catch the sunset in Brasov, where you'll visit the city’s Old Town, a place which preserved the layout of its streets and the medieval fortifications surrounding the city.
