Seven-day Halloween trip to Transylvania | Midnight Tales from Bucharest

Do you have any plans for Halloween this year? We hope you don’t plan to watch that low-budget horror film again. And please don’t go to that boring Halloween party. We have a better suggestion: a personal experience in Transylvania, the land of vampires. A 7-day tour in Romania, the very place that gave birth to the most frightening and awe-inspiring legends, many of them still unknown.

  • Day 1: Bucharest city tour

    Stop At: Old Town, Bucharest Romania
    If you arrive in Romania for the first time, the first city to greet you is Bucharest. The atmosphere will be quite similar to many other capitals: new buildings, historical monuments and the hustle-bustle of a restless city. It’s here that your journey to another world starts, one populated by vampires, mythical creatures and weird phenomena that failed to get an explanation on the Discovery channel.

    Only a few kilometers away from Bucharest we’ll reach a charming islet in the middle of a lake, with a small chapel inhabited by only one monk. The former church is now in the depths, covered by waters, and people say that on stormy days its sunken bell can be heard tolling.

    The evening is devoted to the old historical center; the narrow streets nowadays filled with stylish bistros and cafés used to be witnesses of public trials whose merciless judge was the Wallachian prince Vlad the Impaler (Romanian Vlad Ţepes), Dracula himself. Your Halloween in Transylvania begins with a dinner at the restaurant.
    Duration: 1 hour

    The city tour in Sibiu will include the old town whose attraction is the Main Square sheltering the Brukenthal Museum and the Roman Catholic Cathedral, and it continues with Huet Square where we’ll visit the Evangelical Church.

Around mid-day we’ll get to a place where history mingles with everyday life: Sighisoara is one of the few European fortresses still inhabited. You’ll climb in the old clock tower, going up the same stairs as the former prisoners on their way to cells where they wouldn’t see daylight again.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Sighisoara Historic Center, Piata Cetatii Nr.1 Center of Sighisoara, Sighisoara 545400 Romania
