Built at the end of 19th century on a medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia it is the former summer residence of the kings of Romania. Nowadays it is the most visited museum in Romania.
The second attraction of the day and the main one will be Bran Castle (known as Dracula’s Castle) in Transylvania. The castle is situated in the horseshoe of the Carpathians. With a history of more than 600 years, Dracula’s Castle is still covered in mystery.
The third stop of our day trip from Bucharest is represented by medieval city downtown of Brasov. Here you’ll have up to 2h of free time. You can shop, eat, venture through historical buildings or just go to a few of the astonishing viewpoints towers that surrounds the old city.
