Itinerary:
23 Oct - Welcome to Romania!

Transfer to hotel. As your fellow travelers are arriving throughout the day, there are no planned activities until your Group Meeting in the evening. After the meeting enjoy a traditional Romanian dinner at Dracula Club.



24 Oct - Bucharest - Snagov - Brasov

First visit of the day will be Snagov Monastery. About 40 kilometers north of Bucharest, on an island in the middle of Snagov Lake, lays the monastery with the same name. Built around the time of Vlad the Impaler's grandfather, the monastery has become famous as the burial place of the infamous prince Dracula of Wallachia.



After a delicious Romanian meal we will continue our day with a walking tour in the historical center of Brasov. Fringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains and resplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, as well as a wealth of historical attractions, Brasov is one of the most visited places in Romania.

Tour highlights: Black Church, Citadel of Brasov, Ecaterina's Gate, White Tower, Black Tower, The Blacksmiths Bastion, The Weavers Bastion, The Ropemakers Bastion, The Drapers Bastion.



25 Oct - Brasov - Bran - Sighisoara

Morning drive to Bran to visit the legendary Bran Castle, the symbol of Transylvania also known as the Castle of Dracula. Surrounded by an aura of mystery and legend and perched high atop a 200-foot-high rock, Bran Castle owes its fame to its imposing towers and turrets as well as to the myth created around Bram Stockerís legendary book 'Dracula'.



Founded by Transylvanian Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara (Schassburg in German) still stands as one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic. It is also the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, also known as Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), ruler of the province of Walachia from 1456 to 1462.



26 Oct - Sighisoara - Bistrita (Witches Ball Night!)

In the morning transfer to Bistrita. Visit at the Museum of Ethnography and Folk Art and the Gothic Cathedral in Bistrita. Free time after lunch to prepare your costume and rest for the big night. The witch with the scariest costume will win a special prize. During the party enjoy Romanian delicacies and wonderful local wines, but watch your back for werewolves and ghosts.





27 Oct - Bistrita - Sibiu

Transfer to the fortress town of Sibiu. Sibiuís Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days when rich and powerful guilds dominated regional trade. Like Sighisoara and Brasov, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling. Sections of the medieval wall still guard the historic area, where narrow streets pass steep-roofed 17th century buildings with gable overhangs before opening into vast, church-dominated squares such as Great Square and Little Square.

Sibiu is a pedestrian-friendly city with two easily accessible levels: the Upper town, home to most of Sibiu's historic sights, and the Lower town, lined with colorful houses on cobblestone streets and bounded by imposing city walls and defense towers overlooking the river Cibin.



28 Oct - Sibiu - Curtea de Arges - Poienari - Bucharest

In the morning we depart for Brasov, on the way we visit Curtea de Arges Monastery and the Fortress of Poenari, the most important of Vlad Dracula's strongholds. Located high up the mountain, climb 1480 steps to conquer Vlad's fortress.


Curtea de Arges is the first capital of Wallachia and former princely court. Here we will visit the Princely Church and the Monastery - located at the end of a boulevard with hundred of years old linden trees, Curtea de Arges Monastery is the most important pilgrimage and prayer place in the county of Arges. It resembles a very large and elaborate mausoleum, built in Byzantine style, with Moorish arabesques.



29 Oct - Say goodbye to your new friends! Airport transfer.
