Itinerary

Day 1: Bucharest - Sinaia Monastery (& Museum) - Peles castle - Brasov Sightseeing Tour and accommodation

Stop At: Sinaia Monastery, Sinaia, Prahova County, Southern Romania
Our journey will start with a visit to the Sinaia Monastery, where you will see the long 300 years of treasure trove and meaningful history. Bearing the name after the remarkable sacred Mount Sinais monastery, the edifice was erected as a symbol of gratefulness and admiration of God, to whom the great Romanian politician Mihail Cantacuzino was deeply thankful.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Peles Castle, Sinaia, Prahova County, Southern Romania
We will continue our journey in the Prahova Valley, at the foot of the Bucegi mountains, place well known for both wine and winter sports (even if not both at the same time). The Peles Castle is considered to be one of the most beautiful castles in Europe. The location was not to be chosen by mistake, but by the stunning mountain scenery of which King Carol I of Romania felt in love with.
After enjoying a traditional Romanian lunch (own expense), we will slowly step into the medieval ages, as Brasov is proudly boasting to be Transylvanias most impressive medieval town.
*Please note that Peles Castle is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: Brasov Historical Center, Brasov, Brasov County, Central Romania, Transylvania
Theres a thoughtful reason behind the royal name gave back in the 13th Century by the early German settlers, who named Brasov The Crowned City (Kronstadt). Later on in history, the habsburgic flavor will accompany the Soviet influence as the city will be named Stalin, even though for a very short period of time. Beyond the great heritage for which the city deserves its prestige, Brasov is an exceptionally relaxed place to walk aimlessly, admiring the old buildings charming facades or just stop for the great restaurants or bohemian cafs which you will find at any step.
