Morning: Departure to Transylvania - region that was the inspiration for the Irish writer Bram Stoker for his novel "Dracula". We pass through the Prahova Valley to the Sinaia station, where the Peles Castle - the Royal Castle of Romania - is located.
Afternoon: Visit the Bran village, a beautiful fortress of the 14th century, one of the most famous and also the most expensive castles in the world, thanks to its reputation linked to the unmistakable Dracula. The castle was restored at the beginning of the 20th century by the royal family of Romania- an impressive building that keeps the passage between the two Romanian provinces: Transylvania and Wallachia.
Evening: We arrive in Brasov - one of the most important cities of Transylvania. Surrounded by the wooded slopes of Carpathians, the town was built from the 13th century by the German settlers called "sasi" from Sachsen - Saxons. Invited to Transylvania by the Hungarian king, the Germans - mostly from the Luxembourg region, the Moselle valley and Franconia - populated the entire southern part of the province from the 11th century, except the mountains, dominated traditionally by the Latin-speakers at that time called the valaques or vlachi and later the Romanians. The Germans left after 800 years, following the invasion of the Red Army, the embezzlements of the communist period and finally the freedom of movement gained by the Revolution of 1989. Today only a minority of 0,6% of the Romanian population remains. On the other hand, what remains is an enormous heritage which consists of hundreds of medieval villages, cities such as Brasov, Sibiu, Sighisoara and fortified churches endowed with ramparts following the great Mongol invasion of Genghis Khan in Europe in 1241 .
Today, Brasov is considered the center of alpine tourism in Romania. The old town houses a labyrinth of cobbled streets, medieval buildings, baroque and neoclassical times, ramparts and guard towers and pedestrian streets.
Accommodation in a 3 *** hotel in the center of the city.
