What To Expect
Start your fairytale-like tour with the Bran Castle, the famous Castle of Count Dracula and the well preserved Peles Castle before we stop for a rustic lunch. End you tour in the city center of Brasov.
This Euro-city state castle is rich in history and is a famously known national monument and landmark of the country. Before it was known to be the home of Count Dracula, it served as a defense against the Ottoman Empire and was later made into a royal residence for the kingdom of Romania. It was one of Queen Marie's favorite retreat place. Nowadays, it operates as a museum that displays the queen's collected art and furniture.
Peles is actually a palace by form and function however, it is consistently called a castle. This well preserved, Neo-Renaissance castle's interiors rival French and Austrian palaces and has a breathtaking view of the Carpathians. The magnificent mountain scenery is said to be the reason why King Carol I of Romania bought the estate in the early 1800's. The construction of the castle was finished in 1883.
