The most popular tour in Romania


This is a whole day tour. The trip goes to Transylvania. First stop will be in Sinaia, one of the most popular mountain resorts in Romania also called the Pearl of the Carpathians. Here we will visit Sinaia Orthodox Monastery, a great example of Romanian religious architecture and also the Peles Castle, our famous Summer Royal Residence considered by many one of the most beautiful castles in Europe. We will also visit the Bran Castle, a 14th century medieval fortress better known as Dracula Castle probably Romania's most famous landmark.
After a typical Romanian lunch we continue with a walking tour in the historical center of Brasov known as Kronstadt located in the heart of Transylvania founded by the Saxons some 800 years ago, the architecture is very different than Bucharest having more like a Central European look.
I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests or if you are more than 4 people and need a larger vehicle.
