Trip Info

Dracula Castle. Peles Royal Palace. Medieval city of Brasov. A one day trip and 3 different ages: a king’s palace, a vampire’s castle, and a Teutonic city.

Leave busy Bucharest behind in a one day trip that you won’t easily forget. First off? Go royal! Step into the shoes of kings & queens and explore Peles Palace – the private retreat of Romania’s royal family. The beautiful mountain scenery and elegant gardens built on terraces add even more charm to this majestic 19th century palace. Inside, everything spells luxury: golden chandeliers, walnut tree carvings, marble fountains, secret chambers and a royal armory.

Next, you’ll go even further back in time, during the late middle ages. Myths and legends swirl around the massive Bran Castle, a stone giant guarding the passage to Transylvania since the 14th century. Count Dracula vs Prince Vlad the Impaler. Facts vs fiction. Explore the castle, its outdoor village museum or the House of Horrors.

The tour’s grand finale? An epic medieval fantasy, started by the Teutonic Knights during their first decades of existence. We’ll visit the city of Brasov, founded by the knights in 1211 on top of an old Dacian site. Dramatically overlooked by Mount Tampa, the city’s medieval core is a myriad of narrow cobblestone streets, craft guilds, fortified towers, gatehouses or medieval decorated inns.
