Departure from Sinaia to Bran.
At the middle of the mountain pass, following a small and beautiful river looking like a drop of silvers in the sun, we will go for lunch taken in a dream country-side landscape, in the typical Romanian village. Traditional lunch taken in a cozy restaurant.
Visit Bran Castle: Dracula's Castle - with its medieval atmosphere. This castle came to be connected with the legend of Dracula the Vampire. The castle was built between 1377 and 1382, on a 60 m high rock with a strategic, military and commercial purpose. The building has four towers positioned at the four cardinal points. The walls are made of stone blocks, the rooms and narrow corridors constitute a mysterious labyrinth of ghostly nooks and secret chambers, whilst in the outer courtyard there are artesian fountains, connected to an underground network. The castle had both a military and a customs point purpose.
