Itinerary

Bran Castle

If you are visiting Romania, you cannot miss to see the place where the famous legend about Count Dracula emerged. Join us on this tour and visit the Dracula’s Castle and the city of Brasov. The tour starts from Bucharest and we head off for a scenic ride across the Transylvanian countryside and it’s the dense forests and impressive Carpathian Mountains. During the ride, our licensed guide will share with you interesting history of the region including some famous myths and pagan rituals that form part of the local culture. One of these myths is of course the story of the fictional Count Dracula from Stoker’s story who is often associated with Vlad the Impaler, famous Romanian ruler.

When we arrive to Bran Castle, or popularly known as Dracula’s Castle, we will first do a cheese and wine tasting. You will get to try some of the best local wines, served exclusively in the Castle. Apart from the wine, you will get to taste excellent cheese and enjoy the magical ambient of this beautiful castle. As you explore the castle with our guide, you will learn about the vampire stories of the region and uncover the truth and legends surrounding this legendary castle. An incredible opportunity you will get in this tour is a visit to the Time Tunnel, a museum located 30 meters underground which describes the history and culture of the Bran Castle. After we are done with our visit to the castle, we will take you to see the nearby city of Brasov, beautiful walled-city with incredible historic monuments. The guide will show you the most important sights in the city such as the Council Square, the impressive Black Church, Rope Street and the main gates to the city. You will also have two hours of free time for lunch and further exploring of this charming city.

The Black Church

The Black Church is part of the Evangelical Lutheran community in Brasov, located in the center of Brasov. The Gothic building was partially damaged in the fire of 1689, when its walls blackened and it received its current name. The popular name after the fire, “Black Church”, was officially accepted in the XIX century. The Black Church is one of the most representative monuments of Gothic architecture in Romania, dating from the XIV-XV centuries. With a length of over 89 meters, it is considered to be the second largest church in Romania, after the Cathedral of the Salvation of the Nation and the largest Gothic building in South-Eastern Europe. Due to its size, when it was completed it received the title of The largest church between Vienna and Constantinople.

The Council square

The Council square is one of the most important sights in this city, through here passing thousands of tourists annually. In the Council Square, periodical fairs were once organized in the Middle Ages and in the Modern Era, the meeting point of merchants coming from the Romanian Principalities and Hungary. The goods were charged near the gate that was at the end of Customs Street, today having the name of Mureșenilor Street, from where it was reached directly in the market.

The magistrate and the city officials supervised the observance of the order in the square, so that each trader would place his goods in the place established by the City Council. Today it is a special promenade place, full of terraces, restaurants, museums, bookstores and shops around the square and inside it.

  • We return to Bucharest and arrive in the evening depending on the traffic.
