Description

Explore two Romanian castles in one day on this skip-the-line guided tour of both Bran Castle and Peleș Castle from Bucharest. Learn the myths and legends surrounding Count Dracula, take a guided walk of Brasov's old town district, and witness some of the country's most beautiful mountain scenery.

Feast your eyes on the Pearl of the Carpathians, also known as Sinaia, and take a stroll around the famed Peleș castle. This masterpiece of German Neo-Renaissance architecture was built between 1873 and 1914, and was once home to Romanian royals and wealthy writers who sought out its peace and quiet.

Witness the hall of honor, the weapons room, the music room, the library, the king's office, and don't forget to spend a moment gazing out of a window - the mountain scenery outside is magical!

Driving on through the Carpathian Mountains, you'll see a castle sometimes believed to be the home of Count Dracula: the medieval Bran Castle. Learn about the myths and legends surrounding the famous vampire, then sink your teeth into the history of charming Brasov on a walking tour.

Check out the medieval Saxon walls and bastions, and learn the story of the towering Gothic-style Black Church before travelling back to Bucharest.

The tour was well organized from meeting point to drop-off. The schedule was firm but fair to all the travelers on the tour. We had time for breaks, photos, and eating. The time spent on the attractions was adequate. The guide was very knowledgeable and provided great information throughout the trip.
