Here you will visit  Sinaia Monastery (with the old and the new church) and Peles Castle, built by the first King of Romania, Carol I, to be a summer Royal residence. The castle has an impressive architectural style and built to be a very modern construction (for that time) being the first castle in Europe having electric power. From Sinaia we head to Brasov, an old medieval citadel, first documented in 1235, the most important commercial center from all the seven German Medieval Cities of Transylvania (Siebenbuergen). Visit the Old Town (the Historical Centre), followed by dinner & accommodation.

This fortress was built by the peasants after the “Great Tartar Invasion” in 1243 to fight against some other invasions of the tartars. It was first documented in 1335 by the King of Hungary Carol Robert Anjou, when the fortress survived another Tartar invasion.  The visit will be followed by lunch and visit to Bran (Dracula’s Castle). The medieval Castle Bran was built for military purposes in the end of the 14th century to defend the border between Transylvania and Wallachia, being associate with the “Legend of Dracula” the novel  by Bram Stoker. In the end of the day, return to Bucharest.
