I designed this tour so that you get a good flavour of Transylvania in just one day.

We’ll be visiting some of the most beautiful places in Romania: the royal family’s Castle in Sinaia (Peles Castle), the paramount Castle of Dracula, and then the medieval, Old Town of Brasov. Since I’m born and raised in Brasov, I provide you with a local gem only known by the locals.

• Visit a fairytale-like castle hidden in the mountains, Peles Castle;
• Visit Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle;
• Spectacular scenery of the Carpathian Mountains;
• Explore Brasov, one of the most beautiful Romanian medieval cities;
