Bucharest to Brasov Tour in Transylvania, Peles and Dracula Castle, in 2 Days

Visit the medieval city of Brasov in Transylvania, Peles and Dracula Castle, in a more relaxed, comprehensive, enjoyable and private 2-day tour, a unique tour by Eddie

This Bucharest to Brasov 2-day Tour will be a much more complex and relaxing Transylvanian experience compared to a day trip to Dracula Castle.

The city of Brasov, or Kronstadt, was a typical Transylvanian town in the medieval period. This charming city is placed at the foot of the Tampa Mountain and is one of the most beautiful and most visited cities in Romania. Barsov was founded by German colonists who arrived in Transylvania at the beginning of the 13th century. Here you'll see the Black Church - the largest gothic church in this part of Europe, a charming historical center and sections of the medieval fortification of the city. Moreover, this beautiful town has some  connections with Vlad the Impaler - Dracula. 

Peles Castle is one of the most beautiful castles in Europe. It was built in 1883 by the first king of Romania, Carol I. This unique building was meant to be a royal summer residence and, above all, the cradle of this Dynasty in Romania.

Bran Castle is a 650 years castle placed on a cliff, somewhere in South Eastern Transylvania, a land full of legends and ancestral beliefs about a variety of evil creatures. This castle who heated everyone's minds, being wrapped in superstitions related to vampires was initially a medieval fortress and later on a lovely summer residence owned by The Queen Marie of Romania. Bran Castle became the very famous Dracula's Castle after Bram Stoker's novel, "Dracula".

Itinerary -  Bucharest to Brasov Tour in Transylvania, Peles Castle and Dracula Castle, in 2 Days by Eddie

Day 1

Our tour starts in the morning and we head north toward Brasov. First stop is Sinaia, our beautiful royal city and mountain resort, where we are going to visit Peles Castle, the former royal summer residence of The Royal House of Romania. Then back on the road and we step into  the gothic Transylvania after crossing the picturesc Carpathian Mountains. Next stop will be Brasov City.  After the check-in at your hotel you will have time for lunch, free time and maybe a short walking tour if desired. I have beautiful stories to tell about this charming place and you will discover here the Old Town and admire the Council Square, the Black Church and the Rope Street.

Day 2

After breakfast we could visit some extra attraction near Brasov or you could explore more of Brasov. Then we will head to Bran Village. Here you will have lunch time and then, if you'll have enough courage 🙂 we go to hunt Count Dracula at Bran Castle - known as Dracula's Castle -  our last stop before Bucharest.

Our tour to Brasov ends in Bucharest after a beautiful 2-day tour.

For private tours - by request and only if possible - we could skip (ongoing) some of the tour components in order to have more time for others. Also,  we could have a different tour configuration, based on a prior request (the tour price might be different in this case).
