See Medieval Jewels of Romania

Venture to historic villages, ancient castles and more as you explore the fascinating traditions of Romania’s Transylvania region.

About Your Trip

From the capital of Bucharest to the castles of Transylvania, you’ll see why Romania captures the imagination. Journey into the famed Carpathian Mountains and stop in the town of Sinaia. There, venture to Peles Castle, a picture-perfect neo-Renaissance building erected for King Carol I, who led the country to independence during his reign. Head next to the picturesque Rhein wine cellars in Azuga and learn how authentic Romanian sparkling wine is made — sample 3 different types to explore the tastes of Romania.

In Sibiu, you’ll go on a walking tour in the Old Town district and take in the many historic sites, including the Evangelic Church, Liar’s Bridge (or, the Bridge of Lies), Big Square and so much more. Then, take a horse-and-carriage ride in a small village outside of Sibiu. While you’re there, you’ll witness a recreation of a traditional Romanian wedding that is designed to showcase the region’s customs.

During your next tour, see the walled city of Sighisoara, a UNESCO World Heritage site boasting 16th-century architecture. It’s the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, the violent Prince of Romania who inspired Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.” Transfer next to Bran for an after-hours visit to the infamous Bran Castle, where you’ll embark on a private tour. You’ll also enjoy sampling select house wines. Later, join your fellow DreamTrippers for a delightful, 3-course farewell dinner at Casa de Ceai (Tea House).

On your final day, visit Brasov and see historic sites such as the Black Church, a German Gothic structure, and Ecaterina’s Gate, the only original medieval gate still standing today. Complete your journey back in Bucharest, where you’ll depart with memories to last a lifetime.

What we love:
• In Latin, Transylvania means “Land beyond the forest.” The area is well-known for plentiful flora.
• You will visit 3 walled cities — Sighisoara, Brasov and Sibiu — which are fortified protections left over from the medieval era.
• Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula’s Castle, houses a museum that displays art and furniture collected by Queen Marie, who reigned from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.

Destination

The riverside burg of Bucharest, the capital and largest Romanian city, displays neo-classical, Bauhaus and Art Deco architecture, as well as communist-era and modern structures. First mentioned in documents in 1459, it is now a thriving metropolis of nearly 2 million people. Bucharest is known for its robust collection of art, music and history museums, former Communist strongholds and hearty Eastern European cuisine.

Transylvania is a region in Romania shrouded in mystery within the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains. During the 15th century, Vlad the Impaler, also known as Vlad Dracula, was an infamous, bloodthirsty dictator. Today, Transylvania takes advantage of its fictional vampiric past to attract thousands of tourists each year. Notable monuments of the region include the impressive Biserica Neagra (Black Church) and the ominous Bran Castle. Additionally, Hunyad’s Castle is the place where Vlad the Impaler was imprisoned before forming an alliance with John Hunyadi, the Hungarian military leader responsible for the execution of Vlad’s father.
