    What to Expect
    After pickup at your Brasov hotel, greet your guide and board a car or minivan destined for the dramatic ruins of Rasnov Fortress. Built in the 13th century, the striking backdrop of the Bucegi Mountains enhances the beauty of the fortress.
    Listen to history-rich commentary featuring tales of medieval warfare and local legend, and opt to enjoy lunch in Rasnov village at your own expense. Then, proceed to Bran Castle, arguably the crowing architectural feature of Transylvania.
    The Gothic castle, complete with high stonewalls and rust-red turrets, was used to incarcerate Vlad the Impaler and therefore inspired the creation of Bram Stoker’s bloodthirsty villain, Dracula. Pay the entrance fee at your own expense and then wander through chambers with filled antique furniture and Gothic embellishments.
    After enriching your knowledge of Vlad the Impaler’s gruesome legacy, return to your Brasov hotel and bid your guide farewell. Alternatively, if you’ve opted to upgrade, continue to Peles Castle. You can decide to upgrade on the day of your tour and simply pay in cash.
    Follow your guide through immaculately preserved rooms, decorated with luxurious furniture for the viewing pleasure of Romania’s royal family. Choose to pay an additional visit to the neighboring Pelisor Castle and then conclude your tour with drop-off at your Brasov hotel.
