Day 2 - Vlad the Impaler: the ruler
Your first initiation step takes place in the vaulted cellars under the ruins of prince Vlad the Impaler's palace in
The earth talks. Our ancestors lie there, the roots of our houses, our daily food - the earth is within ourselves in more
than the obvious ways.
Later today, drive to Targoviste, former capital of Wallachia, where from 36 princes ruled from. One of them was Vlad
the Impaler. He reinforced the citadel and built Chindia, a high watchtower.

Day 3 - The genuine Dracula fortress
Today we shall drive north of Curtea de Arges on the same route taken more than 500 years ago by the traitor boyars,
punished by Vlad the Impaler to rebuild the fortress of Poienari for their disloyalty during his first reign in 1459.
The year of 1462: Prince Vlad, his wife and soldiers find themselves besieged here by the Turks.
The villagers from Aref rescued the prince taking him across the high Carpathians to the safe Transylvania. The Aref
villagers still remember Vlad after more than 500 years as they have been rewarded with 14 mountains as pastureland.
One of the most impressive fortified churches in Southern Transylvania is Biertan, built in 1302 as a Hungarian border
fortification. Biertan is better known as the residence of the Lutheran Transylvanian Bishops for almost 300 years but is
also connected to Vlad the Impaler's life.
In 1459 has been appointed to the prince when it was restored for the last time. He lived here many times during his
expeditions to Buda.
Visit Poenari fortress if you dare to climb 1456 steps up on the mountain
Drive through scenic "Transfagarasan" road (the escape) to Balea Lake; time for lunch (at own cost)
Drive toward Sighisoara via Biertan where stop for visit
Overnight in Sighisoara within citadel walls at 3* hotel (Wagner House or similar).
Day 4 - Vlad the Impaler's traces in Transylvania
Sighisoara is the best-preserved 15th century walled town in Europe.
Here, in 1431 Vlad - future prince of Wallachia was born.
Today we shall travel to Brasov : the second largest city in Transylvania. Like Biertan, the citadels, fortresses and
fortified churches surrounding Sighisoara were appointed to Prince Vlad's command during 1454-1456.
Visit medieval Sighisoara: Clock Tower, Hill Church, Vlad the Impaler's native house
Drive to Brasov stopping at Rupea and Feldioara citadels for visits
Overnight at 3* hotel in Poiana Brasov.
Day 5 - The fake Dracula Castle
Visit Bran Castle built in 1377 by master masons of Brasov, on a cliff, dominating the whole region. It is Queen Maria
who arranged it in 1920 into a most romantic castle as you can see it today: the old garret became the fourth floor, the
old cylindrical tower with defense gallery became an apartment, Gothic stone arches framed the entrance doors, stairs
and boarded floors were rebuilt. Better known mostly to Americans as the Dracula Castle, Bran has little connection with
the life of Prince Vlad, being manly associated with the Transylvanian vampire due to its architecture and location.
From Bran continue South through a winding way to the resort town of Sinaia for a royal visit : Peles Castle.
This exquisitely detailed landmark, set amidst sculpture gardens and fountains, was the summer residence of Romanian
Royal family. Inside you'll see beautiful collections of mediaeval weaponry, stained glass, silk rugs and furniture.
Visit Bran Castle
Drive to Sinaia for visiting Peles Castle
Return to Poiana Brasov for leisure time (prepare for the Halloween dinner and party in the Halloween tour)
Overnight in Poiana Brasov at 3* hotel
Day 6 - Epilog
Drive South, three hours away, to Bucharest passing by the forest and lake of Snagov.
This is where our journey into legend and history should end but we leave the secret of Snagov to be uncovered within
your next Dracularian experience.
Bid farewell to the prince and promise you'll return some day to go further on his trails. Or, why not, extend your stay in
Bucharest? - drive Poiana Brasov to Bucharest - transfer to Otopeni airport or to your hotel in Bucharest (if extending
your stay in Bucharest)

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
