In order to visit “Bran Castle”, we did some research before we took our trip to Bucharest. There are multiple ways to go there, including several tours, and we wanted to try the “2 Castles in 1 day” tour with TravelMaker, which also included visiting Peles Castle and stopping shortly in Brasov. So, early in the morning we went to the Romanian Athenaeum which was the meeting place (and just a few minutes walk from our hotel), and in a small group of 16 people we were soon on our new adventure!

A fun trivia: The Kazakhstan scenes from “Borat” was filmed in one of these villages.

 

Peles Castle

Aside from a short stop at a café, Peles Castle was the first place we visited. And the castle, its interior and the surroundings were just breathtaking. If you’re ever going to Romania to visit some castles, make sure to have this one on your list!
