The Castle of Peles, summer residence of the royal families of Carol I, Ferdinand, Carol II and Michele is one of the most beautiful castles in Europe. It was built on the order of Carol I, particular thanks to the architectural style that combines various elements known in the world: gothic, baroque, traditional Romanian, art nouveau and others, so the castle could be considered a lezzione in the history of art.
Continue to the monastery of Sinaia which has existed since the end of the seventeenth century, being in the forests of the Carpathian mountains. The Romanian-style construction "brancovenesc" was made by the Mihail Cantacuzino in 1695.
Arrival at the famous Bran Castle, known as Dracula's Castle, after Bram Stocker created the legend of Count Dracula. In reality the castle was built by the Saxons as a guard post to defend and control the trade route that connected the Transylvanian and Valachian regions in the Middle Ages. The term Bran means "border". The place is linked to the legendary prince Vlad the Impaler who fought a series of fights in the area during the fifteenth century. In our country the castle is known as the summer residence for Queen Maria who came here often, far from court life in Bucharest.

Arrival at the Biertan Fortress, included in the Unesco World Heritage, with the fortified church of Biertan which is a true jewel of Saxon architecture. Three city walls surround the Protestant church that stands on top of a hill.
