Departure at 08:00, direction Bucharest - Sinaia (Visit Peles Castle and Sinaia Monastery) - Bran - (Visit Bran Castle) - Brasov. Return to Bucharest, around 20.00 pm.
Program:After breakfast, departure to Sinaia, a famous town in Romania for its natural beauties and tourist attractions. The Castle of Peles, 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 particularity 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 the history of art. 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 construction "brancovenesc" was made by the army general Mihail Cantacuzino in 1695. The trip proceeds to 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 Transylvanian and Valachian regions in the Middle Ages. The term Bran means "border". The place is linked to the legendary prince Vlad the Impaler who had a series of fights in the area during the fifteenth century. In our country the castle is known as the summer residence for Queen Mary who came here often, far from court life in Bucharest. The tour continues to 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, Catherine Tower, the Black Tower and White Tower and the ancient area of the city called Schei, where the Romanians lived from long ago. Return based on traffic, after 19:30. We are waiting for you!
