DAY 2,Friday, Bucharest – Sinaia – Bran - Rasnov - Poiana Brasov
Morning transfer to Sinaia, the pearl of mountain resorts in Romania. The main point of attraction is Peleş Castle, one of the best preserved and beautiful royal residences in Europe. Built in 1873, Peleş is an architectural mixture of the German School and neo-renaissance style.
Continue your journey with Bran Castle, Transylvania’s legendary symbol, dating back to 1377. Bran owes its fame both to its unique charm and to the myth Bram Stoker created around Dracula. Close to the castle there is a shrine that is set in the wall of a mountain which once sheltered the heart of Queen Maria, the niece of Queen Victoria of Great Britain.
Cheese tasting is strongly recommended in Bran as the village is renowned for the delicious home made traditional cheese assortments produced there.
Visit next Rasnov Medieval Citadel. Standing on top of a hill and overlooking an incredible Transylvanian landscape, Rasnov is the best preserved rural fortification in Transylvania and the largest one in Eastern Europe, first documented in 13 century.
Accommodation is in a medieval 4* hotel in Poiana Brasov. Dinner could be enjoyed in the medieval restaurant of the hotel.
DAY 3, Saturday, Poiana Brasov – Brasov – Sighisoara
Explore in the morning the medieval Saxon city of Brasov, one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe. Visit 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.
Transfer next to the medieval Citadel of Sighisoara. Founded by Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara still stands as one of Europe’s most beautiful and inhabited fortified cities, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sighisoara is also the place where Vlad the Impaler, known as Dracula, was born. Visit the main attractions: the Clock Tower, the Torture Room and the Medieval Weapon Collection.

In Romania the weather in October-November is very unpredictable, with daytime temperatures between 15-20 grades Celsius, and night time temperatures between 5-10 grades Celsius; but it is very much possible that you will see some snowfall especially in the mountain section. However the weather is very changeable, so you should expect big temperature changing.
