This one-day tour reveals two attraction points of maximum interest, both situated in a picturesque region of the Carpathians mountains, but still not too far from the capital city.

Peles Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains. This former Royal Castle has hosted many important personalities, including celebrities, dignitaries and royalty. It is also home to over one of Europe's most important painting collections, housing almost 2,000 pieces of art.

Bran Castle, more commonly known as "Dracula's Castle", is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia. It is said to be the home of Dracula, as there is evidence that Vlad the Impaler had used this castle during his raids into Transylvania. It is currently a museum which displays the furniture and art collection of Queen Marie, with a small open air park exhibiting Romanian peasant structures from different parts of the country.
