Overview

Immerse yourself in the legends of Transylvania Castles with a visit to Bran Castle and Râșnov.

Period: all year round.

Days of departure: Tuesday – Sunday (Monday – Fagasas Citadel is closed)

Meeting point: The History Museum Piata Sfatului Square (Brasov, Romania) – 9:00 AM. Our guide holds the sign “Meeting Point GUARANTEED DEPARTURES DAY TOURS”.

Duration: 9 AM – 6 PM (aprox.)

We start the tour in Brasov at 9:00 and we drive about 1 hour to Fagaras town where we visit Fagaras Citadel. Situated right in the heart of central Romania, the Fagaras fortress in the town of the same name represents one of Eastern Europe’s largest and best-preserved feudal Castle complexes. Unquestionably the most-visited site in the medieval old town of the city, the castle was once the kingpin of regional power. Throughout the 17th century, the citadel was expanded continuously, reflecting the growing wealth of a centre that exercised control over much of Transylvania and central Romania.

Departing from Fagaras, we drive about 1 hour with a stop at Bran Castle, also known as ‘Dracula’s Castle’ – a hilltop estate that conjures up visions of howling wolves and bats fluttering in the moonlight. Wander the castle’s Gothic chambers and learn about its ties to Bram Stoker’s undead antihero. Enter if you dare, after paying the site fee (own expense), and wander through the castle’s many well-preserved rooms and chambers with your guide. Gothic furnishings and details help set the scene for ghastly legends of all that happened here, including the imprisonment of Vlad the Impaler. This 15th-century prince was notorious for his bloodthirsty campaigns against invading Turks and is said to have inspired Stoker’s malevolent Count Dracula.
A short drive brings you to Râșnov to explore its imposing, 13th-century fortress, a walled stone compound designed to ward off attacks by the fierce Tartars and used as a refuge for local villagers during medieval warfare.
