Transylvania is Romania’s most popular travel destination, and its charming and mysterious castles are a big part of the almost mythical fascination it spreads. From well-known monuments like Bran Castle to smaller castles that once belonged to the local aristocracy, the hundreds of castles of Transylvania tell a story of their own rise and decay, often directly connected to the troubled history of Romania.

What To Expect

Peles Castle
When King Carol I of Romania visited the small village of Sinaia in the foothills of the Bucegi mountains in the 1860s, he was captivated by its scenic location and commissioned the construction of a palace there. The resulting castle is easily one of the most stunning in all of Europe.The first couple to live there, King Carol I and his wife Queen Elizabeth of Romania were known to be very different in temperament and interests. The king was an accomplished soldier who greatly expanded and improved the Romanian military, and the queen was more artistic, with a great fondness for music, art, and literature, and even published poetry under the pen name Carmen Sylva. Peleș, too, was a reflection of these two different personalities.

Rasnov Escape
Rasnov Fortress (Rosenau in German) is one of the most interesting landmarks of Romania located in Brashov county, on a rocky hilltop in the Carpathian Mountains, halfway between the Brashov and Bran, 200 meters above the town of Rasnov. The Rasnov fortress is the best preserved, biggest and the most complex fortress of the South and South East of Transylvania, also known as “Peasant Fortress”, situated on the trading route which was linking the provinces of Wallachia and Transylvania, 156 km from Bucharest and just 8 km from the resort of Poiana Brasov.

First mentioned in an official document in 1331, the Rasnov fortress has been possibly built by a group of knights from the Teutonic Order as to be a stopping point for European soldiers headed to or coming back from the Middle Eastern crusades and as protection against invading Tartars. Having an important location on the commercial road from Bran, Rasnov fort and settlement becomes very important in strategic terms because it could control the access from Transylvania in Rasnoavei Valley. This strategic position of Rasnov has attracted many military invasions, being one of the few fortresses in Romania which is nearly whole. The Rasnov fortification was later enlarged by the local Saxon population. Strategically located on the commercial route linking the provinces of Transylvania and Walachia, Rasnov stronghold differs from other Saxon fortresses in that it was designed as a place of refuge over extended periods of time. Rasnov fortress is built in a simple architectonic style, inspired by the old medieval settlements of 500 years ago.

Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle)
The fame of the castle taken abroad is due largely to Bram Stoker, author of the famous novel “Dracula” – the story of the vampire-count that never ceases to fascinate. The connection between the character in the novel and Prince Vlad the Impaler – Dracula is even suggested by the author who wrote somewhere in the book “… was it really that prince Dracula who opposed the Turks over the great river, even from the border with Turkey.“ Although the history disproves that Vlad Tepes, ruler with vampire traits ever lived in Bran Castle, the blood – hungry count’s story is so popular and widespread that it almost no one is interested in the truth. Dracula’s legend is one thing, the story of Vlad Tepes is something different, but this “confusion” put the small town and the castle on the map of international tourism and brings important financial benefits to the area.
