Transylvania and Dracula's Castle Full Day Tour from Bucharest

665 reviews
No visit to Romania would be complete without ticking off Transylvania, where ancient castles are set against backdrops of dramatic rolling hills. See the best of the region without having to worry about car hire or navigation on a day trip from Bucharest, which offers a great introduction to local history for first-time visitors.

This is a fairly small statue of a wolf nurturing Romulus and Remus, from the myth about the foundation of Rome. With the benefit of the knowledge of the myth the statue is more meaningful. Worth a quick look when you're already in the area.

While in Bucharest, enjoyed seeing the Lupa Capitolina monument. I have always enjoyed the story of Romulus and Remus. If you are not familiar with this story, please read about it, then you will enjoy seeing the statue all the more. They have done a nice job with this one, located in the tourist area for everyone to enjoy.

Located at the entrance of Strada Lipscani. The statue is of a Roman wolf nurturing Rolmulus and Remus. It is a replica of one located in Rome and was a gift from Italy in 1906 to celebrate Romania’s Latin origins.
