Castle Tour of Transylvania

  • Minivan/Bus tour
  • 2 days
  • Perfect for small or mid-sized groups

A two-day tour through some of the most well-preserved Transylvanian castles and palaces, going from early medieval stone fortifications to modern and lavish royal summer residences and presenting the rich history of their builders and inhabitants.


Day 1: Cluj-Napoca – Sighișoara – Viscri – Bran

From Cluj, we drive to Sighișoara where we admire the most beautiful medieval townscape in the country, which is often used as a film set. We visit the Clock Tower, the Church on the Hill, the Citadel, the fortified walls and towers of the town, as well as the birthplace of the Wallachian leader Vlad Dracul, who later became known as Count Dracula in Gothic literature and film. Nextm we visit the charming village of Viscri, with its fortified church. Afterwards, arrival at Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle. The Bran Castle Museum is located on the former border between Transylvania and Walachia. Also known as the Dracula Castle, it was built in 1377 to safeguard the trading route between Transylvania and Walachia, enlarged and restored a few times since then. This castle is known as the homestead of Vlad Țepeș (Vlad the Impaler) and it’s the most visited attraction in Romania. The writer Bram Stoker brought the fame of the Dracula myth in our country at the beginning of the 20th century. Dinner and accommodation in Bran.

 

Day 2: Bran – Peleș – Kalnoky Castle – Cluj-Napoca

After breakfast, we visit the Peleș Palace, the summer residence of the Romanian royal family (and one of the most beautiful royal summer residences in Europe), a modern palace built at the end at the 19th century to resemble castles from the late middle ages, and the main attraction in Sinaia. Its generously furnished rooms host, among others, a fresco by Gustav Klimt. Our next destination is the Kalnoky Castle, a 17th century countryside castle belonging to a family of Hungarian noblemen, built with a mixture of late Renaissance and neo-classic architecture and surrounded by a 19th century English-style park. Drive back to Cluj-Napoca later in the afternoon.
