Are you ready to be a little bit spooked? Are you keen to see some stunning Neo-Renaissance architecture and visit one of the most important historical places in Romania? On this tour, you will get to experience all of this and more as we take you to Bran Castle, Peleș Castle and Râșnov Fortress in just one day!
Romanians have a different approach to the whole vampire culture than other European countries.
There is one room in the castle that pays homage to the whole Dracula thing, but the rest is the country history.
Besides Vlad the Impaler was held prisoner for 3 nights in this castle and had no connection with it whatsoever. Bran Stoker came up with all of it after chatting with his Hungarian friend.
However, Bran castle boasts a great view on the remains of the border wall between Walachia and Transylvania, and a tiny church Quern Marie built next to it.
