DAY TRIP FROM BRASOV-LOCAL EXPERIENCES IN TRANSYLVANIA
The first destination on our list is Bran Castle, a location with a history of more than 6 centuries, more commonly known as Dracula’s Castle. Over the ages, the legends of the castle became stronger than its history, and hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Bran Castle each year in search of Dracula
You will then visit a quaint village located at height of more than 1,000 meters. This land is a true piece of heaven, being surrounded by some of the most important Carpathian Mountains, such as Bucegi, Leaota, Piatra Craiului, and Postavarul.
Next, we will head to the Bats’ Cave, located in the north-west of the Bran platform, at an altitude of approximately 950 meters. The cave was created by the erosion of the mountain by the Valea cu Cale Creek, and its name is given by the massive bat colonies that live inside it, including some unique species of bats.
You will take a visit to Fundatica, an area located at the highest altitude in Romania. In this place, the fresh mountain air keeps the locals healthy, and the average lifespan of more than 80 years serves as a testimony to this claim.
After a delicious traditional lunch, you will start a trekking journey towards a traditional sheepfold, where you will see how the sheep are milked and how the local cheese is produced, following methods and traditions passed down from generation to generation.
At last, we will catch the sunset in Brasov, where we will visit the city''s Old Town, a place which preserved the layout of its streets as well as the medieval fortifications that surround the city.
Discover the unspoiled beauty of an authentic mountain village, mentioned in National Geographic’s book “Greatest Landscapes”, and then walk through nature and taste the fresh milk and traditional dishes of the Bran-Moieciu area. Throughout this tour, you will experience the picturesque lifestyle of Transylvania and you will be overwhelmed by Romania's history and tradition while discovering the mystery and magic of our beautiful country.
