Sibiu is a medieval city situated in Transylvania. Due to its position, we can organize different day trips from here. This tour has the mission to present some of the most important castles in Romania!
Crossing the middle of Romania, the Wild Carpathians, will give you the opportunity to discover virgin landscapes, traditional ancestral villages and also a bit of our culture and history. The tour will give you the opportunity to analyze different periods of time, a variety of architectural style, and distinctive lifestyles. The first drive will be towards Rasnov City and Citadel. Dating back from the 15thCentury, the citadel is situated on top of a hill from where amazing landscapes can be admired by all visitors.
Next stop will be at Bran Castle, one of the most famous Romanian castles due to Stoker’s story of Dracula. The legend is based on the life of Vlad Tepes/Vlad the Impaler (1431-1476), a ruler revered by Romanians for standing up to the Ottoman Empire. Yet during our visit we will uncover all of the mysteries behind the walls of once a royal residence, today a national monument and landmark of Romania.
We will then head towards Sinaia, a mountain resort also called “The Pearl of the Carpathians”. Here we will visit the Peles Castle, a masterpiece of German Renaissance architecture. Being a symbol of the Romanian culture, great art collections are exposed inside its walls. In close vicinity, we will also enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Sinaia Monastery.
The drive back to Sibiu will give you time to assimilate the information you just gathered from all the places we have discovered.
