Bran (Dracula) Castle, Bear Sanctuary, Rasnov Fortress and Palinca Distillery
Visit the famous Bran Castle which initially served as military defense fortification, then as customs point and ultimately as one of the summer residences of the Romanian royal family. It's a medieval castle with a royal touch, that's also linked to the Dracula legend. Besides touring the castle you also get free time for souvenirs in the bazaar at the footsteps of the landmark.
Before we visit the Rasnov fortress we perform a brief stop at a local Palinca distillery. Here you can taste the traditional Romanian spirits made out of plumbs, apricots, cherries, pears and more. You will witness the manufacturing process and get the chance to buy some for take away.
The Rasnov citadel is a peasant fortress with a spectacular view and plenty of souvenirs. A private guided tour of the landmark is provided by your guide.
