This is a small group full day tour from Bucharest to Transylvania on a very picturesque route through the Carpathian Mountains allowing you to discover two of the most beautiful Romanian castles.

You will meet the guide and the other fellow travelers at 07:45 am at the meeting point which is in front of Romanian Atheneum, the big concert hall with Greek columns located next to Athenee Palace Hilton Hotel. There is a small garden in front of the concert hall and the tour guide will wait in
front of this garden. The exact address is 1-3 Franklin St., Sector 1, Bucharest.

At 08:00 am, you will leave Bucharest heading north towards the Carpathian Mountains and Transylvania.

The first stop is Sinaia, a beautiful mountain resort, where you will visit Peleş Royal Castle – the former residence of the Romanian Royal Family.

Continue the day with a scenic drive through the Carpathian Mountains and, in about 1 hour, arrive at Bran where you will visit Bran medieval castle, also known as Dracula’s castle.

Before heading back to Bucharest, we will remain in Transylvania and stop for a short time in Braşov, a typical medieval city. You will stop in the Council Square and start a short walking tour in the Old Town. You will learn more about the story of the Saxons in Transylvania, admire the impressive and well-preserved architecture, see the Black Church (symbolic building of the city – view from outside) and discover which is the second narrowest street in Europe, the Rope Street.
