For years Dracula remained a mystery for most of those who read Bram Stocker’s novel. They come to Romania in search of this fearful vampire and looking forward to find out interesting stories and legends about him. Not too many people know the fact that Bram Stocker had as a source of inspiration the life of a cruel, Valachian ruler, Vlad the Impaler, a very important personality in the history of Romania.

Join us on the footsteps of Dracula and visit places which will reveal you the real story of this legendary character. During one day you will see Bran castle in Transylvania, the medieval castle which became so famous thanks to the legend of Dracula.

You will also visit the real fortress which used to belong to the Valachian ruler, Vlad the Impaler. Poenari Fortress is located on the top of a hill surrounded by impressive mountain scenery. Prepare to climb 1480 steps for about 20-30 minutes on a trek of aprox 1 km. The landscape up there, is worth doing this.

In the evening you will head back to Bucharest.
