Overview

Your adventure begins as soon as you get aboard the bus at Bucharest. Driving through the magnificent Transylvanian countryside, you will marvel at the deep green forests and the majestic Carpathian Mountains. It is no surprise that this region, its natural splendour and atmosphere, inspired Bram Stoker and countless other writers and artists.

On your journey to Bran Castle, your local guide will paint a vivid picture of Romania’s colourful, sometimes tumultuous, history. Our guides are natural storytellers, and they will weave together the real historical facts with the region’s fascinating pagan rituals and folklore. Learn about Vlad the Impaler — the often-misunderstood leader that inspired Stoker’s fictional Count Dracula. Judge for yourself the line between fact and fiction, between man and myth…

This is an opportunity to try authentic Romanian wine and cheese in the most unique setting imaginable.

As you take this exclusive tour of Bran Castle, you will learn about Romania’s pagan myths and folklore surrounding the “strigoi”, the vampiric creatures who rise from the grave, transform into animals, and drink their victims’ blood. You will also learn about the history of Romania, going as far back as the Crusades, 700 years ago. Uncover the truth and the legends surrounding this legendary castle nestled in the epic Carpathian Mountains.

Go far beyond the standard tours of Transylvania’s legendary castle by going 30 metres underground the castle to the Time Tunnel. The unique construction, 100% Romanian, was designed to describe the history and culture of the Bran Castle using a state-of-the-art multimedia exhibition. To reach the tunnel you will get into "Stone" elevator, located right in the courtyard of the castle and which is considered to be the greatest current innovation among the European museums.

After the tour of Bran Castle, you will be taken the short drive to Bra?ov, where you will have two hours to have lunch and explore this authentic Romanian city. Your guide will take you through the city, regaling you with the city’s 800 years of written history and culture. You will visit Brasov’s beautiful Council Square, the Black Church, Rope Street, and the city’s old defensive walls. Visit the main gates to Brasov and its impressive watchtowers.

Afterwards, you can enjoy free time and explore the city however you please.
