Welcome to a world of ancient fortresses, glorious castles and bloody history…
(Also available as daytrip with some adjustments)
Day 1 –
(08.30) From Bucharest we stop at Mogosoaia Castle for a look at this 18th century symbol of decadence. We then head north into the mountains where our next stop is in Azuga for lunch (winetasting option) at the lovely Halewood restaurant there. We then visit Bran Castle (Dracula) before we head to Brasov for an informative tour of the fortified medieval city center. We spend the night either at Casa Wagner or at Bella Musica in the heart of the old city; the evening is free to enjoy a variety of lovely restaurants and to explore the nooks and crannies of this historical and beautiful city.
Day 2 –
(10.00) After an easy start and a nice breakfast we continue our journey by visiting Harman and Prejmer fortified churches. An introduction to Saxon history from our guide will complement the high walls and ingenious systems put in place by the original inhabitants of these villages. We press on to Rasnov Citadel, giving us a nice view over the plains beneath and further insight into medieval defense tactics.
On the way back to Bucharest the crown jewel of the trip, Peles Castle, is waiting for us. With its 160 rooms it is a masterpiece of German Renaissance architecture and a must see in Romania.
We should arrive in Bucharest around 19.00.
