Itinerary is the following:
Our trip starts from Bucharest, and in about 2 hours you will be in Sinaia City. The town was named after Sinaia Monastery. Here you will visit the first castle: Peles Castle. Peles Castle is a masterpiece of German new-Renaissance architecture, considered by many one of the most stunning castles in Europe. To get to the next objective, Bran Castle, we will go through the Carpathian Mountains. 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. Brasov is home to one of the narrowest streets in Europe-The Rope Street . Take a peek inside the Black Church, the largest Gothic church in Romania. Though its name, Black Church may seem dark and foreboding, the building is nothing to fear. You will be overnight in Brasov City.
Typically, travelers spend here about 1.5 - 2 hours per Castle. Entrance fee is not included and is around : Peles Castle-10 euros per person; Bran Castle - 10 euros per person, Black Chruch -3 euros per person.
After breakfast, we will go to visit Hartman Fortified Church, UNESCO Heritage, very well – preserve. We will continue our journey to Sighisoara Medieval City where you will stay overnight. Sighisoara still stands as one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic.The Clock Tower, the house where Vlad Dracula (Vlad the Impaler) was born, the Church of the Hill with its 500-year-old frescoes and the Church of the Dominican Monastery, known for its Transylvanian renaissance carved altarpiece, are just few things really worth to visit in Sighisoara.
Entrance fee is not included.
We will leave in the morning Sighisoara City, and we will head towards Ocnele Mari Salt Mine. The largest saline park in Romania comprises a church (the largest underground church in Romania, a museum, a restaurant, souvenir shops, football, basketball and tennis fields, a pool table, a pool and a children’s playground.
