We are waiting for you!
Day 1 (November 1 st) Departure at about 08:00, direction Sinaia (Visit Peles Castle and Sinaia Monastery) - Bran - (Visit Bran Castle) - Brasov. Accommodation in Brasov in the city center.
After breakfast, departure for Sinaia, a town famous in Romania for its natural beauty and tourist attractions. The Peles Castle, 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, owes its peculiarity to the architectural style that combines various elements: Gothic, Baroque, traditional Romanian, art nouveau and others, so the castle could be considered a lesson in art history.
Later we visit 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 "brancovenesc" building was made by army general Mihail Cantacuzino in 1695.
It runs along the famous Bran Castle, known as the Castle of "Dracula", 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 Transylvania and Valachia 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 struggles 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.
The tour continues and arrives in Brasov, one of the most beautiful multicultural cities of our country, located in Transylvania. You can see the Council Square, the Council Tower, the Black Church, the Ecaterina Tower, the Black and White Tower and the ancient area of the city called Schei, where the Romanians lived from ancient times.
Dinner and accommodation in Brasov.
Day 2. Brasov - Guided tour of the city of Brasov - Rasnov Fortress - Snagov Monastery - Bucharest or Otopeni Airport
After breakfast you will take a guided tour of the city and then free time for walks / buy souvenirs / photos, then departure for the Rasnov Fortress, the most famous and most preserved fortress built by the Saxons in Transylvania for defense reasons.
We continue and arrive at the Snagov Monastery, where it is said that Vlad the Impaler (the son of Vlad Dracul) was buried. The monastery was strategically built in the middle of Lake Snagov, on the island of the same name. Inside is the largest medieval wall painting preserved in a Romanian church, built in the 16th century. Eventually the guide will leave you at the airport or at your hotel in Bucharest.
Return to Bucharest in the evening.
