What to expect

Unravel the mystery behind Dracula's Legend and join our one day Transylvania and Dracula Castle Tour. Visit the most popular and iconic castle in Romania: the Dracula Castle or also known as Bran Castle. Explore Transylvania and breath-taking Carpathians on our tour from Bucharest.

We will pick you up around 8:00 am from your accommodation in Bucharest and we will head to the mountain city of Sinaia. Here we will visit probably the most beautiful castle in Romania, Peles Castle, which was built in an enchanting bavarian style by our first King Carol I.

Next, we will explore a must-see point for every visit to Romania - the Dracula Castle. The road from Sinaia goes through beautiful mountain landscapes as we will be crossing the Southern Carpathians. In place, your professional and local guide will share with you all the details about Dracula Vampire legends.

After visiting those important landmarks, we will have a chance to admire one of Romania’s most beautiful towns called Brasov. The city was built by Saxons and was remarkably preserved throughout time, housing now Romania’s biggest gothic church, named The Black Church. After a guided tour in the city center, we will enjoy a break in the old town. You can walk through the charming streets, get some lunch or even visit some local museums in your free time in this city.

We will be back in Bucharest in the evening, around 20:00 p.m.
