Stop At: Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), Str. General Traian Mosoiu nr. 24, Bran 507025 Romania
Surrounded by an aura of mystery and legend and perched high atop a 200-foot-high rock, Bran Castle owes its fame to its imposing towers and turrets as well as to the myth created around Bram Stocker's Dracula.
Built on the site of a Teutonic Knights stronghold dating from 1212, Bran castle was first documented in an act issued on November 19, 1377, giving the Saxons of Kronstadt (Brasov) the privilege to build the Citadel.
Bran (Dracula Castle) RomaniaAlthough Stoker never visited Transylvania, the Irish author relied on research and his vivid imagination to create the dark and intimidating stomping ground of Count Dracula, leading to persistent myths that it was once the home of Vlad Tepes, ruler of Walachia. While the association with Dracula is sketchy at best, the castle continues to hold a strong attraction for all fans of the Count.

Stop At: Rasnov Citadel, Unirii Square no. 12, Rasnov 505400 Romania
Râșnov Fortress (Romanian: Cetatea Râșnov, German: Rosenauer Burg) is a historic monument and landmark in Romania. It is situated in Râşnov, Brașov County, in the immediate vicinity of Brașov.
The fortress was built as part of a defence system for the Transylvanian villages exposed to outside invasions. A decisive aspect for building the fortress at its location was the route of the invading armies which were coming from the Bran pass and were passing through Râșnov, on their way to Braşov and other parts of the Burzenland region. The only chance of survival for the inhabitants of the area, including from Cristian and Ghimbav, was the refuge inside the refuge castle at Râşnov. Compelled to stay there for decades, the people of Râșnov and the nearby villages turned the fortification into their long-term place of residence.

This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate
Our driver / guide, Florin, was really friendly and told us a lot of information about the places we passed by or visited. Cause of the private tour, we could customize the tour a lot and skip one attraction that we weren't interested and instead we went to another that was not in the trip plan. In attractions we spend just us much time as we wanted, without need to wait for anyone else, or to hurry cause of the schedule. When we got back to Bucharest, Florin showed us one extra sight from the city, cause he heard that we had not been there, cause it was raining in that day when we could visit there. Huge thanks to Plan and Go Bucharest, and especially to Florin for making a perfect day for us!
