Summary

Romania is dramatic and exciting and shrouded in mystery. On our tour of Romania, we’ll peel back the layers of culture and history and learn that there’s much more to this country than Gothic stories. There’s rolling hills and rugged landscapes; vibrant cities and charming towns frozen in time; thrilling castles and dazzling monasteries.

  • Peoples Parliament, Bucharest, Romania

    Bucharest

    Romania’s capital city is a trove of great museums, stroll-worthy parks and tempting eateries. Its turbulent political past is plain to see from the severe Stalinist architecture - but the organic curves of 17th and 18th-century churches and graceful La Belle Époque-style villas can be found hushed away in hidden corners.
    We waste no time in peeling back the layers of Bucharest’s history with a full-day tour, encompassing all the highlights including the beautifully restored historic centre. We’ll also enjoy a guided visit of the Palace of the Parliament.

  • Central fountain in Bucharest, Romania

    Bucharest

    Today is free for you to explore the city under your own steam. Perhaps revisit some of the magnificent sites from yesterday’s tour - or make your own discoveries. Seek out some of the city’s charming treasures - we love Cărturești Carusel, one of the world’s most beautiful bookshops. Or perhaps stop for a taste of the local fare - juicy mici-pork rolls and aubergine salad are typical Romanian dishes.
    Alternatively, you could join our optional excursion to former President Ceausescu's Palace and the open-air National Museum of the Village.

  • Peles Castle, Romania

    Sinaia - Azuga - Brasov

    Peles Castle - the summer residence of the Royal Family - is a neo-Renaissance masterpiece. Sharp spires, timber-framed panels, and detailed brickwork surrounded by thick forest in every shade of green - you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve walked straight into the pages of a storybook. But the inside is even more impressive, with every corner lavished in silk rugs, Murano glass and polished marble. We’ll enjoy a guided tour this morning.
    Romania might not be the first country that springs to mind when you think of fine wines, but it’s known for its aromatic whites and full-bodied reds - and today we’ll be treated to a sparkling wine tasting and lunch at one of the country’s most prestigious wineries. Nestled among the majestic Carpathian Mountains, the award-winning Azuga Wine Cellar offers incredible scenery as well as an interesting history as the official supplier of the Romanian Royal Family.

  • Council Square Brasov, Romania

    Brasov

    Imagine a huddle of pastel-coloured baroque buildings encircling a sun-bathed pedestrianised square. Shoppers bustle from store to store browsing fabrics and local handicrafts, the sound of chatter and clinking glasses rings in the air from alfresco eateries. The forested Mount Tampa in the distance is stamped with ‘Brasov’ in huge white letters. It’s a delightful scene and it draws travellers from all over who want to simply ‘be’ here.
    We spend the whole day exploring this charming town together. We start with a guided visit to Prejmer fortified church; a superbly preserved complex encircling a Gothic church - the walls are an impressive 4.5-metres thick. This afternoon we discover the medieval parts of Brasov, including the Black Church, Rope Street and the Schei district as part of our guided tour.
    Please note: Due to opening times, our 13 October 2022 departure will visit the Black Church on day 7.

  • Viscri Church Transylvania Romania

    Viscri - Sighisoara

    The white walls of the Saxon village of Viscri are set against miles of vibrant green pastures. Best known for its white fortified church, Viscri is also an excellent example of traditional rural Transylvania and we’ll spend some time getting to know the area before continuing to Sighisoara.
    Walking through Sighisoara’s twist of medieval streets is a tranquil, fairytale-like experience; you’ll feel utterly transported. But it wasn’t always this peaceful and idyllic. In fact, its towers were once packed with weapons and emergency supplies in anticipation of Turkish attacks. We’ll spend the whole day exploring and learning about the history here - including the medieval weapon collection, Vlad the Impaler’s native house and the torture chamber.
    This evening we’ll enjoy a special dinner with wine tasting and a live folklore show at a local restaurant.

  • Bran castle, Romania

    Bran Castle

    The morning is yours to spend as you please. Perhaps delve deeper into the secrets of Brasov’s medieval old town or you might like to join an optional private visit to the nearby Libearty Bear Sanctuary - the largest animal welfare project in Europe.
    Later this afternoon we take our much-anticipated visit to Bran Castle, or Dracula’s Castle as it has come to be known. Perched on a headland above Bran, you’ll see the castle’s conical towers rise above the thick green forest as we approach - and it’s simply thrilling. Our evening visit means we’ll have the castle completely to ourselves for a private guided tour. You’ll wind up the narrow staircases, wander through creaky-floored corridors and admire grand rooms decorated with bearskin rugs and antiques. It’s undoubtedly atmospheric, but there’s no whiff of vampires here. Our guide will explain the castle’s history - dating back to the 14th century - before a traditional Romanian feast in the restaurant below.
