Bran and Peles Castle Day Trip

8.60 / 10
I did the one day tour with Roberto in English the first week of October and we visited Peles Castle, Bran Castle and the city of Brasov. It was very interesting and I was able to admire the beauty not only of the castles, but also the beautiful landscapes that Transylvania has, with its Carpathians full of colors this fall. Roberto was very kind and while we traveled he was telling us about the history of Romania and the landscape. Tour more than recommended to know a little bit of Romania.

Delve deep into the beautiful mountain landscapes of Transylvania and Wallachia on this full-day trip from Bucharest. Explore the mystical Bran, known as Dracula's Castle and the Peles palace-castle.

Bran and Peles Castle Day Trip

After being picked up from your hotel in Bucharest, you'll head north through the mythical forests of Transylvania.

Our first stop takes blace in the Bran Castle, where you'll learn the story of one of Romania's most famous characters, Vlad "The Impaler", a sinister character from the 15th century, which inspired the famous Bram Stoker novel, "Dracula". We'll remember the parts of the story that will help us to understand the development of the myth, as well as how this character became an icon of popular culture and a symbol of Romania.

With the tour of Bran complete, we'll stop nearby to relax with 60 minutes of free time to eat lunch. then we'll make our way to Sinaia, a mountainous region of Wallachia, where we'll visit the imposing Peles castle. Its palatial halls were used by the Romanian royal family as their summer residence, and we'll tour the wide halls, beautifully decorated according to taste at the end of the 19th Century, when King Carol I began its construction.
