Bran Castle is the only landmark that attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists because of a legend :Count Dracula’s Legend.

Bran Castle, one of the most valuable medieval architectural monuments in Romania, with its historic, military and economic significance, is known by tourists across the globe as Dracula’s Castle.

Bran Castle was originally a stronghold built by the Knights of the Teutonic Order in 1212. It was known by the name of Dietrichstein at the time.

Later on, towards the end of the 13th century, it was taken over by the Saxons in that region in order
to protect the City of Brasov, an important trade center,against invading Turks.

The castle has four towers, the Powder House Tower is the oldest, it is part of the original castle built in 1212.

The castle had a protective and commercial purpose. It had two rows of walls closing the passing towards South. They were made in stone and brick. Only few traces of the initial defense position still exist.

Bran is a town nestled in a mountain pass between the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului ranges and during the 15th and 16th centuries was an important frontier town on the main road leading from Transylvania into Wallachia.

On December 1st, 1920, the Brasov Town Council donated the Bran Castle to Queen Marie of Romania,who lived there with the royal family till 1947.

Queen Marie held the castle as her second favourite residence after the one in Balcic.

We invite you to discover the real traditional life in Transylvania countryside.

The Transylvanian countryside is dotted with villages and castles dating back to the middle ages and before. With a mix of  mountains, rolling hills and pine forests  it is a picturesque landscape.

The landscape over the hills and mountains is sensational and you also have the opportunity to find more about the life of the villagers.

This region of the world has seen many turbulent times, however the people of Transylvania proudly and openly welcome you to share their history, and culture.

The Transylvanian countryside  is filled with a world of fortified churches, farms and horse-drawn carriages.Most people around here still use a horse and cart to get around!
In some places you’ll see  crossing paths with shepherds tending their flocks.

Nowadays there are still many peasants who embrace this lifestyle: vegetables come from their own garden, eggs from their chickens, fruits from the orchard,milk from cows, water from the well and heat from the fireplace.
