Hotel
Upon arrival, your driver/guide will pick you up from the airport and you will be transferred to your centrally located hotel in order to drop your bags and relax for a while.

At night, your Romanian adventure will begin with a tour of Bucharest’s Old Town, where you will admire the historical buildings that were scarred by the communist regime, as well as the modern structures that were only recently completed.

You will then enjoy a delicious dinner with traditional products in one of the most beautiful and interesting locations in Bucharest, Caru cu Bere.

After serving our first Romanian breakfast, we will put on our trekking gear and we will begin the second chapter of our adventure. We will climb the 1480 stone steps in order to reach the proud Poenari Citadel, one of the fortresses that belonged to the infamous Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration behind Dracula.

We will then take a trip on the best road in the world, as named by Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson, Transfagarasan. Prepare your cameras for a wonderful scenery, where the mountains seem so close that you’ll feel like you can touch them, and where the wilderness of the forest will charm you.

We will make a short stop at the Vidraru Dam, a colossal building raised with a great human sacrifice, designed to resist any earthquake and flood.

For lunch, we will stop at the Valea cu Pesti restaurant, where we encourage you to try the trout, a delicious and fresh local fish.

After lunch, we will leave for Sibiu, and we will reach the city at night.

Hotel
Today we will have a taste of Transylvania and discover its history, and its beautiful and hard-working people. One of the best dishes in Romania is in Transylvania, the region which was, over the years, home to many nationalities which left their mark on the local cuisine.

The Transylvanian villages are quiet and remote, but behind their gates you will find people that work from dusk ‘til dawn. Today you are going to meet one of the local families that inhabit this historic region.

You will also visit an animal farm and a bio-garden, and you will have a chance to help the local family with housekeeping, feed the animals, and embrace the family atmosphere. Afterward, we will hop on our bikes and take a ride to Hosman, a nearby village where we will visit a fortification that dates back to the medieval times. Here, the locals will teach us how to bake a traditional Saxon bread, one that Prince Charles himself orders it every time he comes to Romania.

At night, we will head back to Sibiu where we will spend the night. The stunning city of Sibiu was founded by German settlers in the 12th century, but the first human settlements in the area are dating from the Paleolithic period. The city was named the European Capital of Culture in 2007, and each year it hosts Romania’s most beautiful Christmas Market.

The Sibiu Grand Square is located in the center of the city, and it is one of the largest in Transylvania. It is also close to numerous important attractions, such as the Brukenthal Palace which houses the National Brukenthal Museum, and to the Jesuit Church.

The fourth day is dedicated to the appreciation of the cultural heritage that we were blessed to have in Romania, and one of the touristic attractions that we will visit today is the Biertan Fortified Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The church was fortified in the Middle Ages by its craftsmen, whose descendants live in this area to this day, preserving traditions that are hundreds of years old.

We will then take a stroll through the village, where we will visit local beekeepers and a local workshop of traditional embroidery, and then we will serve lunch in a medieval-themed restaurant. Then, we will leave for Sighisoara, whose historic center is included in the UNESCO Patrimony.

Sighisoara is the only medieval citadel in Europe that is still inhabited, and some historians claim that it is the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler. We will visit the Clock Tower, about whose clock a legend says that it is never desynchronized, thus tourists and locals always adjust their clocks according to the one in the tower.

We will then head to a castle that belongs to the Kálnoky Family, mentioned in official documents for the first time in 1588 as the landowners of Micloșoara. The archeologic sites proved that a manor existed on that location before today’s castle. Near the castle, you will also find an English park from the 19th century, where today only a couple of rare species of trees remain.

Overnight at a traditional guesthouse (dinner included).

Today we will meet some of the people who chose to make Romania their home. We will discover their stories, why they moved here, as well as the things they have done for the local community.

We will start the day with a short visit to the Rupea Citadel, one of the oldest fortifications in the Brasov County, which offers a splendid view over the village and its surroundings. The citadel is composed of three courts built between the 13th and 17th centuries, their extension having been caused by the demographic growth. It was used both as a defense citadel as well as an administrative citadel of Saxon seat.

After visiting it, we will head to Saschiz, a small town which, at one point, was the rival city of Sighisoara. Here, a local craftsman will teach us how ceramics are made, according to ancient techniques.

Here we will meet a couple, Anca and Charlie, who settled here and made a goal out of promoting local products and growing short food chains. We will visit their household and the processing workshop, and we will enjoy some homemade cookies, a cup of coffee, water, and some delicious jars of jams and pickles.

Our next heroes are some people that developed a pottery workshop in the community, a workshop that reinvents the ceramics made in the area between the 16th and 18th centuries, together with the local authorities, a foundation from Great Britain, and another one from Romania. Together, we will find out their story and learn their techniques, which we will then apply when we will create our own ceramics, which we will keep as souvenirs.

We will then take a ride with a traditional wooden carriage and we will visit a water Buffalo farm in order to sample some fresh cheese products.

Afterwards, we will head back to the guesthouse to spend the night and have dinner.

On the sixth day, we will listen to the murmur of the forest and discover the wild animals of Transylvania. The Romanian Carpathian Mountains are home to approximately 6,500 bears and 3,000 wolves, making it one of Europe’s wildlife hotspots as well as one of the last resorts of wildlife diversity. Besides bears and wolves, a large number of lynx, deer, wild boars, and chamois live in these mountains.

From Micloșoara we will leave for Brasov, a very beautiful city located in the center of Transylvania. We will step into the natural world from the first hours of the morning, by climbing the Tampa Mountain Natural Reservation. It was created in order to protect and preserve the natural landscape and the species of flora and fauna, and it is considered the only natural reservation in the world located in the middle of a city.

Once you reach the top of the mountain, you’ll be able to admire the beautiful city, and then we will take a cable car ride in order to get back to the city and take a city tour. We will discover some of the most important touristic attractions in Brasov, as well as a small part of its history.

The rest of the day is booked for a bear tracking session through the wild forests of the Carpathians. Our trained professionals will guide you through the forest and will initiate you into the art of animal tracking, and you’ll have the chance to spot some of the wild animals mentioned above, as well as some of the birds that live in this area (hawks, buzzards, mountain eagles, peregrine falcons, owls, woodpeckers, and more).

After four hours of wandering through the forests, we will head back to Brașov to check in to the hotel.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Today we follow the footsteps of Dracula and discover the villages that are strongly connected with Dracula himself. Every village, every mountain road, and every mountain peak reminds us of the tales of the infamous vampire lord.

26 kilometres southwest of Brașov we will find the small village of Bran, the location of the famous Castle of Dracula (Bran Castle). The medieval castle was built in 1377 by the Saxons of Kronstadt on top of an older wooden castle raised by the Teutonic Knights in 1212.

We will take a tour of Dracula’s Castle and discover some its stories and legends, and with a little bit of luck, we might even stumble into Count Dracula himself.

We will then head to Sinaia, where we will visit Peleș Castle, the former residence of the Romanian Royal Family. Peles Castle has an approximate number of 160 rooms, and during Nicolae Ceausescu’s Regime, the castle was designated a protocol location. Peleș Castle was the first fully electrified castle in Europe.

Due to the exquisite quality of the wines and champagnes, the Rhein & CIE Azuga Wine Cellars became in 1920 the “Main supplier of the Royal Court of Romania”. Halewood continues this tradition by recreating the elegance and shine of the interwar period to its RHEIN EXTRA sparkling wine.

Today, the Rhein & CIE Azuga Wine Cellars are a promotion centre for the wine culture, providing all the wine lovers with the chance to visit a functioning wine cellar and to discover the authentic atmosphere of a sparkling wine factory more than 120 years old.

Your trip to Romania has ended, make sure to start planning your next trip, to discover even more of what Romania’s history and legends.
