Visit Bran Castle and Peles Castle in this 2 Castle tour starting from Brasov. We will walk you through 2 different ages. In this tour we will see a king’s palace (Peles castle) and a vampire’s castle (Bran Castle). So, let’s taste a little bit of the Transylvania history.
The day tour will begin with the tour of Peles Castle, castle used by the royal family in the 19th and 20th century. The mountain and the elegant gardens from around the castle adds even ore charm to this extraordinary castle. Inside, you will see the luxury: golden chandeliers, walnut tree carvings, marble fountains, Venetian mirrors, secret chambers, a royal armory, one of the finest collections of art in Eastern and Central Europe and exotic timbers and solid bronze doors.
The architecture is between Italian elegance and German aesthetics along Neo Renaissance and Gothic Revival lines. For sure you will feel like a king or a princess.
The next stop is Bran Castle also known as “Dracula’s Castle”, the castle is built on a hilltop with view on each part of the valley. The castle got its fame from the novel “Dracula”, written by Bram Stoker and Dracula movie due later directed by Francisc Ford Copplola.
We will visit the castle’s many well-preserved rooms and chambers. Gothic furnishings and details help set the scene for ghastly legends of all that happened here, including the imprisonment of Vlad the Impaler.
We will have time to take some souvenirs just outside of the castle, where you can find “Dracula” gifts, and local handmade things of wool and wood.
After or before the Bran Castle tour we will take a short break to eat something traditional.
