Romania at a glance

Dark legends, priceless monuments, and fascinating historical revelations are revealed as you travel deep into the Transylvanian countryside in the shadow of the Carpathian Mountains. Discover remote Gothic ruins and fortresses, medieval castles, steep gorges, a tragic monastery, and the ruthless trajectory of Vlad the Impaler.

Begin your tour in Bucharest, and make your way directly into the breathtaking Transylvanian landscape. At Curtea de Arges, visit the soaring 14th-century monastery associated with an abundance of sorrowful legends.

At Poienari Fortress, take photos of the eagle’s-nest throne of Vlad the Impaler. In Sibiu, tour the most fortified of the region’s Saxon cities. The Saxons also built Biertan and other “peasant fortified churches” in an architectural style reproduced extensively across Transylvania.

In Sighisoara, a beautiful medieval citadel, climb to the beautiful Clock Tower for an exquisite view. At the end of your walking tour, have coffee in the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, now a prominent restaurant.

In Brasov’s Old Town, admire the Black Church (the largest Gothic cathedral in southeastern Europe), the Old Town Square, and St. Nicholas Church, the most important Romanian medieval church.

Proceed to Bran Castle, widely called “Dracula’s Castle,” but warmly redecorated by Queen Maria in the 1920s. The luxury continues at Peles Castle, the 19th-century royal residence, where the exquisite décor includes Carrara marble, Murano chandeliers, Venetian mirrors, and walls carved from 40 types of wood.
