    What to Expect
    Day 1: Bucharest – Sinaia – Brasov – Sihisoara (309 km)

    Pick up in the morning from your hotel. The first stop ist Sinaia, a very famous mountain resort known also as the Pearl of the Carpathians. Here, you'll visit Sinaia Monastery and Peles Castle, the former summer residence of Romanian royals. Considered one of the most beautiful castles in Europe, the construction is impressive thanks to the architectural style and decorations. 

    The next stop is Brasov, where you will have lunch in a typical restaurant and take a walking tour of the city's historic Old Town. You will see the Council Square, the Council Tower, and the famous Black Church (Biserica Neagra), the largest Gothic construction in Eastern Europe.

    In the evening, you'll head to Sighisoara for dinner and stay overnight in the medieval citadel. Do not miss a short walk in the citadel and admire the medieval buildings at the light of the lanterns.

    Day 2: Sighisoara – Bran – Bucharest (329 km)

    In the morning, have breakfast at your hotel. You'll start the day by visiting the Medieval Citadel of Sighisoara, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only medieval citadel in Europe that is still inhabited. The highlights of the citadel are: the house where it is said that Vlad the Impaler (known as Dracula) was born, the Clock Tower (on the top of which you can take some beautiful panoramic pictures with the citadel), the Covered Stairs, and the Evangelical Church.

    In the afternoon, you will head to Bran and visit Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), which became famous thanks to Bram Stoker's classic work of literature.

    In the afternoon, return to Bucharest for drop off at your hotel.
