Full description
Immerse yourself in the legend of Vlad the Impaler, inspiration for the fictional Count Dracula, on this full-day tour of Transylvania from Bucharest.

Tour Peles Castle, the most famous Royal Residence in Romania. Built between 1873 and 1914 in a Neo-Renaissance style, Peles Castle was commissioned by King Carol I of Romania (1839-1914) after he fell in love with the mountainous countryside.

Continue through the mountain scenery to Bran, where you will visit Bran Castle, commonly known as “Dracula’s Castle,” and learn the legend of the terrifying fictional Count. Your last stop of the day will be Brasov, located in the heart of Transylvania, where a walking tour through the historical center will reveal sights such as the Gothic church of Biserica Neagră, and the Medieval Catherine's Gate, the last remaining of the city’s defensive walls.
