What To Expect

Peles Castle
Peles Castle is the most impressive castle in Romania and a must-see attraction if you’re passionate about stories of royalty, splendid architecture, and history. The summer residence of the royal family until 1948 when it was confiscated by the communists, the castle from Sinaia is today, like in its first years, one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle)
Bran Castle is ultimately a magnificent medieval fortress that Queen Maria turned into a special royal residence, one of her favorites, in the years that followed WW1.

While many of the visitors who show up in large numbers, making it the most visited attraction in Romania, go in search of the Dracula legend, the castle itself has nothing to do with Bram Stoker’s famous novel.

It’s instead a great place to imagine centuries of medieval fights and past times of royal glory when Romania’s most beloved Queen turned it into a home.

Brasov Historical Center
Brasov is one of the most visited cities in Romania, offerings its tourists a rich mix of history, architecture, culture, urban fun, and impressive natural surroundings. A top tourist attraction in Romania, the city was for centuries a key commercial center and a strong industrial hub during the long decades of communism when its name changed for 10 years to Stalin City.

Black Church (Biserica Neagra)
Over 600 years old, the Black Church from Brasov is the most iconic historical monument from this old Transylvanian town. The largest hall-church east of Vienna and one of the biggest medieval churches from this part of Europe, this impressive Gothic construction is impossible to miss if you’re wandering through the center of Brasov.

Rope Street - Strada Sforii
