About the trip

Romania is a land of many more traditions than you’d normally expect from some lesser-known Eastern European country, and Christmas is no exception. From cheerful groups of children singing carols from door to door to mouth-watering dishes and various odd habits, the homeland of Dracula is kind of a truly amazing place to spend Christmas.

DAY 3

Bucharest - Bran - Brasov (+/-175km)

After breakfast at our hotel we will transfer to Brasov en route stopping at Bran, where we will visit the famous castle in Transylvania, Dracula’s Castle, an edifice that lives up to the Gothic fairytale image that Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula book evokes. The castle was created by the Saxons in the late 14th century to defend Brasov from invasion by the Turks, and its interior displays rich Western European furniture, which Queen Marie purchased in the 1920s when the castle was used as a royal residence.

DAY 4

Brasov

Christmas Day! After breakfast we will begin our exploration of the medieval town of Brasov, starting off at the main square, Piata Sfatului. Situated in the heart of the medieval quarter, it’s one of the finest Baroque squares in Romania. Next, we will visit the 15th century Town Hall, with its quaint Trumpeter’s Tower and the Lutheran Black Church. The church took almost a century to build (1383 – 1477) and is so-called for its soot-blackened walls – the result of a great fire started by the Austrian army that swept through Brasov in 1689.

It was built in the late 19th century for Romania’s first monarch, King Carol I, and took 39 years to complete. Romania’s first cinema was established in one of the castle’s rooms.
