2 Days in Transylvania, learning the myth behind Bram Stoker's Dracula


Hello traveler from far away!

Are you interested in learning more about the controversial Vampire? Let's explore together some of the secrets of this fictional character, and of the Real person it's based on! I promise you you'll come as a guest and leave as a friend, with unforgettable memories and beautiful photos.

We will spend together 2 days in the beautiful Transylvania, taking a sink into the history, geography, traditions of our country, talk about Dracula and Vlad (the other Vlad, not me), but also the reality of today's Romania.

We will see beautiful places, of wich many related to Vlad the Impaler. His birthplace, his burial grave, his faux castle and his real castle, but also other impressive places in Romania.

Looking forward to seeing you!

NB: ***I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests or if you are more than 6 person

Itinerary

First day we start early in the morning, at around 8. 30 AM, headed for Snagov, where Vlad the Impaler's body is said to be found. Then we visit Peles Castle which, even if doesn't have anything to do with Dracula, is one of the most beautiful castles in Europe. Then we go in Bran, to see the famous castle of the infamous vampire :). After lunch in Bran, we go towards Brasov, one of the most beautiful towns of Romania. By the evening we will arrive in Sighisoara, the birthplace of Vlad (the prince, not me :) ), where we can spend the night just in the house he was born.

The second day we leave early Sighisoara, headed for Biertan, to get a sink into authentic local culture. Then for Sibiu, another beautiful city. After Sibiu, we go on towards Poienari Citadel, the REAL castle of Vlad the Impaler. Later the afternoon we take a walk in Targoviste, the capital of Wallachia during Vlad's reign. Towards the evening, tired but very satisfied and with beautiful memories and photos, we return to Bucharest.
