- Following the Bram Stoker's novel " Dracula "

 Only   Legends,  Myths & Truths tour

Round I : Cluj – Dej – Bistritza – Bargo Pass
Round II :  Sighisoara -  Brasov – Bran
                  – Sibiu -    Hunedoara

DAY 1  Cluj - Napoca

First stop when you arrive in Transylvania  - Romania (by Orient Express from London , as  Jonathan Harker arrived in search of Count Dracula a century ago ) is the city of  Cluj.

Evening tour of Cluj, admire here two impresive monuments
Saint Michael’s
Gothic-style Roman Catholic Cathedral, the second largest in Transylvania, and the most famous Dormition of the Theotokos Orthodox Cathedral  built in a Romanian Brâncovenesc style, a synthesis of Renaissance and Byzantine architecture

D
inner accomodation 3*/4* hotel 

Optional: How about a genuine Dracula tattoo?
It’s hard to believe, but here in the heart of Transylvania you can find the best Turkish kebab, that we strongly recommend in spite of the irony – a Turkish specialty in Dracual’s country, given the fact that he was the worst enemy the Turks could have had.

Or
delight yourself with a vampire menu for dinner, a delicious reason to travel to Transylvania! Still, an evening to fear, you’ll attend the killing of a vampire; you’ll be part of the crowd seeking to take the bloody creature to a special place where the ritual can begin!

DAY 2  Cluj –  Dej - Bistrita -  Bargau Pass

Today we begin our round journey following places as they were described by Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula  toward Bargo Pass

In our way, in  Dej we can  have a picture of the  original one  century old railway station  .


But if you select to go via  Turda you can see
the place where you’ll put your existence to the test! Here you’ll descend into the heart of one of the biggest salt mines in the country – Turda Salt Mines.
The Mine ends in a narrow tunnel where a mirror is placed.
Should you see your reflection in the mirror, you will know you still have a soul to worry about
J

Stop for late lunch in Bistritza, into the original Inn “Golden Crown”, where Harker had the last meal before  meeting the Count Dracula, experince for yourself a medieval meal and sweet drink.

Check in former Bistritza  Postal Station for tickets to ride  by Horse Coach to  the Count Castle or keep using your motorcoach.

Have a wine tasting in a small wine celler, and supply yourself for hard times to come..
Make the acquaintance of a unique character, Misiuga, the Baron of Dracula. He’ll welcome you in his windswept Dogarilor (Coopers’) Tower last bastion of  Bistritza Citadel with  a surprise exibition 

Head next for Count  Dracula’s Castle, built in accordance to Bram Stoker’s imagination on the border between Transylvania and Moldavia on Borgo Pass.

Listen the sad story of the Count Dracula in front of  a night bonfire,
Have a late dinner an finish your  Transylvania supplies

To test your courage, visit Dracula’s Coffin in the dungeon of the castle, where  Count Dracula use to rest durring the  daylight time.
The culminating point of your adventure in Transylvania!
Accommodation and candle lit dinner

DAY 3  Bargau– Bistrita – Sighisoara

Bid farwell to Bram Stoker who remains here  guardering his creation: Count Dracula      

Return to Bistrita for a look at one of  the most important religiouse monuments of the area  which was by turn of the time a Roman basilica, a Catholich church, an Unitarien church and today’s Orthodox.

Drive for the round  two of the jurney: the Truth and History

Sighisoara, the best preserved and still inhabited medieval citadel in Europe and a UNESCO heritage site, but probably most important for you it is Prince Vlad Dracula's birth place!
For your lunch we recommend ‘Prince Vlad Dracul’s House’, the very place where he was born, turned today into an exquisite restaurant wherein you can find frescoes dating back to the 14th c.AD

On  Halloween party time, put on your costume and get into the mood. Plenty of opportunities for you tonight: buy After-life Insurance, attend a witch trial, the Count's Fortune-teller will be at your disposal, witness the apparition of Dracula  performed by a witch and listen to your guide’s good advice, and you might just escape without being impaled! The best Halloween party idea, don’t you think?

 

Submerge yourself in the medieval atmosphere by visiting Sighisoara’s main attractions: The Clock Tower - built in 1360 and standing 60 meters tall on top of the citadel's hill, it hosts a museum and offers a great view over the citadel, The Torture Room, The Medieval Weapon Collection, Covered Stairs, the Church on the Hill.
If you survive, you’ll find refuge in a 3* hotel or inn nearby

DAY 4 - Sighisoara – Brasov – Bran Castle

Drive to the medieval Saxon city of Brasov to visit the historic town centre and its famous Black Church, the best-known gothic monument. The edifice holds the largest organ in Europe, which was partially destroyed during the great fire of 1689.
It was here, in the city of Brasov where Prince Vlad Dracula led raids against the Saxon merchants and found his saxon love..
If you think you can’t see stranger things than what you’ve already seen, you are wrong!
Today you’re introduced to the famous Bran Castle in Transylvania. The castle owes its fame to its unique charm,  history of Prince Vlad Dracula and to the myth Bram Stoker created around Dracula blends here.
Not far from here is the Horror House , a special treat dedicated for the strong-hearted; lunch Popasul  Reginei
Accomodation 3*/4* hotel 

DAY 5 - Brasov – Sibiu

The custodians report a strange smell of violets whenever the ghost of the Queen Maria (the niece of Queen Victoria of Great Britain) returns to her beloved play-ground.!

For a walk on the famous Bridge of Liars you’ll travel to Sibiu, a city with a wonderful medieval charm, excellent views of the surrounding landscape and great food ,if you have some courage to spare you’ll cross the Bridge of liars and make a confession.
Shall you utter any lie, the bridge will collapse!

In the next vicinity Mhnea the Bad, Prince Vlad Dracula’ son was asasinated , while he was returning from the  Church.

Wisit also the Evanghelical church where  another historical figure Baron von Frankistain is buried

 Mountains & Lakes

 The Carpathian Mountains are the eastern wing of
the great central mountain system of Europe
curving 1500 km (~900 miles) along the borders of
the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Romania and
the Ukraine.
The Carpathians, which only in a few places attain
an altitude of over 2500 m,  are nowhere covered
by perpetual snow, and glaciers do not exist,
so that the Carpathians, even in their highest altitude,
recall the middle region of the Alps, with which,
however, they have many points in common as
regards appearance, structure and flora
The mountain resorts offer unlimited entertainment
  possibilities both in summer and in winter time
