at 125 km away from Bucharest, an approximately 10-hour trip (leaving the hotel at 8 o’clock). Sinaia is one of the main winter and summer mountain resorts in Romania, known as “the Carpathians’ Pearl”. You will admire the Peles Castle – former residence of the royal Romanian family, built in the 19th century by the 1st king of Romania, Carol I and the monastery of Sinaia (founded in the 17th century by Mihai Cantacuzino – great Romanian dignitary upon his arrival from a journey to the Holy Land; the resort takes its name from the Sinai mountain). Continue toward Bran and visit the Bran Castle (14th century) which hosts an interesting museum of medieval art and history. Here lived for a while the ruler of Wallachia, Vlad Tepes – the Impaler; thanks to the American film directors the castle is worldwide known as Dracula’s Castle.
