Medieval transylvania Tour in 3 Days - Sibiu,  Biertan, Brasov, sighisoara medieval citadel, Dracula Castle and  Peles Castle, from Bucharest 

Let's discover the medieval Transylvania in a unique 3 Days private tour by Eddie

More time for you - my tours are designed to give the traveler a fair amount of time to really enjoy the attractions included

This medieval tour from Bucharest to Transylvania is a great option to for seeing a lot of this magic land in only 3 days. We will discover famous castles, medieval citadels, fortified churches and breathtaking landscapes.  

Peles Castle is very much connected to our Royal Family, being built by our first king, Carol I of Romania, in 1883. This unique building was meant to be a royal summer residence and, above all, the cradle of this Dynasty in Romania.

Bran Castle was initially a medieval fortress in Transylvania, and later on a lovely summer residence owned by The Queen Marie of Romania. Moreover, Bran Castle became the very famous Dracula's Castle for many reasons,  a strong one beeing Bram Stoker's novel, "Dracula". 

Brasov, a typical Transylvanian medieval town, placed at the mountain foot. Here you'll see the Black Church - the largest gothic church in this part of Europe. 

Sibiu is a charming city in Transylvania which impresses with its medieval part while Biertan and Sighisoara are stunning medieval UNESCO sites. We believe Vlad the Impaler - Dracula was born in Sighisoara and we will see here his father's house.
