From Bucharest: Dracula's Castle Private Day Trip

1. From Bucharest: Dracula's Castle Private Day Trip

Travel through the mountain scenery to Bran and visit Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula’s Castle on this private day trip from Bucharest. Learn the legend of the terrifying fictional Count and wander through the Gothic chambers and turrets. Begin with a pickup from your hotel in Bucharest and head north to the Transylvanian Alps to Sinaia and Brasov. See the 17th century Sinaia Monastery, inspired by a church in Mount Sinai. Next, arrive at Bran Castle and explore spooky hallways, towers, chambers and discover its history with your guide. At the end of the tour, return to your hotel in Bucharest.

From Bucharest: Full-Day Peles, Dracula Castle & Brasov Tour

2. From Bucharest: Full-Day Peles, Dracula Castle & Brasov Tour

Hop in your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle and start your day with a fantastic visit to Peles Castle. Situated in Prahova Valley at the foot of the Bucegi Mountains, a place well-known for both wine and winter sports (even if not both at the same time), Peles Castle is considered to be one of the most beautiful castles in Europe, which King Carol I of Romania fell in love with.  Further on, continue your journey to the mysterious Bran Castle, known from Bram Stoker’s fang-tastic stories. As an alternative to the haunted stigma, the Bran Castle can be seen as a rich medieval patrimony for Romania, a royal palace in a not so common part in Europe.  After visiting the two enchanting castles, you'll be pleased to step in a city abundant with cobbled streets, as Brasov is proudly boasting to be Transylvania’s most impressive medieval town, a treasure of wealth for historical interests. Brasov is an exceptionally relaxing place, excellent for walking around aimlessly, admiring the old buildings and charming facades or just stopping at one of the great restaurants or bohemian cafés which you can find at any step.

Brasov: Bran and Peles Castle Day Trip From Bucharest

3. Brasov: Bran and Peles Castle Day Trip From Bucharest

Surrounded by an aura of mystery and legend, perched 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. After enjoying a private guided tour inside for your small group only, you will have some free time in the souvenir market. After a short drive, reach the city of Brasov filled with splendid medieval and Gothic architecture with its wealth of historical attractions. Here, you will enjoy a walking tour of the old city.

From Bucharest: Small-Group Dracula Day Tour

4. From Bucharest: Small-Group Dracula Day Tour

If you are looking for a day of adventure to cut yourself off from the stress of everyday life, we have put together for you a one-day tour of the Bran Castle, followed by several other important sites worthy of your attention. Here is an overview of our private tour, highlighting the main tourist attractions we will be visiting: 1. PELES CASTLE If have decided to write your memoirs or you want to brag about having seen the most beautiful castles in Europe, the Romanian royal family’s summer residence is, by far, one of the most important tourist attractions in Romania and in Europe, and you will soon understand why. Every year, thousands of important figures and hundreds of thousands of tourists book tours of Romania for this attraction alone, to admire its beauty and at least for a few hours, feel like royalty. 2. BRAN/ DRACULA’S CASTLE Step inside if you dare! We Romanians are often amused that 80% of the hundreds of thousands of tourists that book Tours of Romania and come from across the globe to see the Castle of Dracula, or more accurately, the Bran Castle, leave with their history lesson learned and forget about Bram Stoker’s fiction. Once you see it in person, you will understand why this castle is a symbol of Romanian tourism and why it is the most visited tourist attraction in Romania. 3. BRASOV CITY TOUR Are you looking for a different urban experience through which you can explore the history, and culture, and rediscover the beauty of nature, all at the same time? The city of Brasov is the ideal destination for lovers of history, music, culture, adventure, good food, winter sports, hunting, hiking, and even romance. It is the quintessential mountain adventure. We guarantee that the Brasov tour will be the high point of your trip –literally. Even though its average altitude is 625 meters, because its structure includes the Postavaru Peak, it is the highest city in Romania. Another thing that makes this tourist destination unique is that Brasov is the only city in the world that contains a natural reservation, the one on mount Tampa.

What people are saying about Sinaia

Daniel was a great tour guide. I took a solo tour and he helped me in skipping ahead of the line on a very busy day at Castle Bran. I usually don’t take tours when visiting new areas but I’m glad I booked with this touring agency as it was fun and filled with knowledge. It was totally worth it!

Nicolas was an excellent guide on this fast trip from Bucharest to Bran Castle. Friendly and knowledgable and we really enjoyed the trip and lunch with him
