Itinerary (subject to change)

Day 1 - Welcome to Romania! A professionally trained English speaking guide collects you from Bucharest Airport and transfers you to the medieval Saxon Citadel of Sighisoara (about a 5 hour drive). Founded by Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara still stands as one of Europe’s most beautiful and still inhabited fortified cities and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sighisoara is also the place where Vlad the Impaler (known as Dracula) was born. The building still stands and it was turned into a cozy restaurant where one can taste the Count's delicious dishes. Overnight accommodation in a charming, intimate 3-star hotel with outstanding medieval charm, offering 4-star services, located in the very heart of the medieval citadel.

Day 2 - Submerge yourself in the medieval atmosphere by visiting Sighisoara’s main attractions. The Clock Tower, built in 1360 and standing 60 meters tall on top of the citadel's hill, hosts a museum and offers a great view over the citadel. Continue your journey with Bran Castle, Transylvania’s legendary symbol. Unrightfully called Dracula’s Castle, Bran owes its fame both to its unique charm and to the myth Bram Stoker created around Dracula. Documentary evidence of the castle dates back as far as 1377. A true fortress and once a fort guarding a commercial road, all its walls are made of stone and the rooms and narrow corridors form a labyrinth of hidden corners and secret chambers. In 1920, Queen Mary - the niece of Queen Victoria of Great Britain - turned the castle into a beautiful summer residence. Close to the castle there is a shrine set in the wall of a mountain which once sheltered her heart. Lunch can be enjoyed in Bran village, a cheese tasting is strongly recommended as the village is part of the Rucar-Bran corridor famous worldwide for its delicious homemade traditional cheese assortments (the ones smoked in pine tree bark are particularly delicious). Travel next to Rasnov, home of an impressive Peasant Citadel. Standing on top of a hill and overlooking an incredible Transylvanian landscape, Rasnov is the best preserved peasant fortification in Transylvania and the largest one in Eastern Europe, first documented in the 13th century. (Please note that it is most likely you'll see the citadel from the outside only as you could arrive here after its opening hours). For your overnight accommodation, it's on to the medieval Saxon city of Brasov. A city with an outstanding medieval atmosphere, Brasov has played a vital role in Romania’s history, both old and new. Three quarters of the city is surrounded by mountains and it is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe. The most famous landmark of Brasov is the Black Church, the largest gothic edifice in southern Europe dating back to 14th century. Initially called St. Virgin Mary, the church was renamed after the great fire in 1689 that blackened its walls. Your accommodations are in a 3-star hotel. Enjoy a city tour and then relax in the lively pubs or discos.

Day 3 - In the morning, you'll depart to Bucharest airport for your departing flight.
