Enjoy a tour of Romania's most famous castles, including Peles Castle and Bran Castle, and free time in Brasov's old town.

A guided tour from Bucharest will take you to some of Romania's most iconic castles. Visit Peles Castle and Bran Castle, and stroll through Brasov's Old Town.

After being picked up in Bucharest:

  1. Depart for Sinaia.
  2. Visit Peles Castle, the former abode of Romania's kings.
  3. View furniture, ornamental objects, rugs, tapestries, sculptures, paintings, and weapon collections from the 15th to the 19th centuries.

Continue to Bran, where you may see the magnificent Bran Castle, widely known as Dracula's Castle. Discover the castle's history and strategic purpose as the border between Transylvania and Wallachia.

Spend your leisure time in Brasov admiring the town's houses built in Renaissance, Baroque, Provincial, and Neo-Classic stles. Explore Brasov's mediaeval fortress, once one of Europe's most secure fortresses. See the historic wall that has been intact, the Black and White Towers and the Weaver's Bastion.

Learn about Catherine's Gate, located near the Schei Gate in the western part of the citadel, and its four minor towers, representing the mediaeval right of life and death over the vassals' lives.
