Overview
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 - Peles Castle & Bran (Dracula's) Castle - as well as the city of Brasov in south Transylvania.

  • Travel between Bran Castle (Dracula's Caslte) and Peles Castle with ease 
  • Receive personalized attention in a small group limited to 15 people

What to Expect
Following departure from a designated meeting point in central Bucharest, arrive at Peles Castle, a Neo-Renaissance structure backed by the Carpathian Mountains. On the days Peles Castle is closed (some holidays and seasonally on Mondays and Tuesdays) you will visit the imposing Rasnov Citadel. This tour includes all entrance fees for your convenience, and runs in a small group. Take a guided tour of Peles Castle before continuing to Bran Castle (Dracula’s Castle), the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s literary sensation. Learn about the castles’ history from your guide. The next stop is Brasov, home to the Black Church (Biserica Neagra) and a multitude of medieval monuments. Take a guided walking tour before returning to Bucharest by coach.

Castle Peles is a corner of Romania's history. Ancient arhitecture, old furniture and those mighty statues are just a little bit of the interesting things that you will find in this impressive castle.
