Bran Castle aka Dracula’s Castle

Bran Castle aka Dracula’s Castle

Bran Castle this famous and legendary site, that spikes our  interest every time we hear about it… Is it really as tremendous as it’s fame? Is Bran Castle worth visiting?

As a tour guide and tourist as well, I say ABSOLUTELY YES. I have been through every corner of this castle so many times I cannot even count, I have stopped and looked at it from afar and up close and it is simply astonishing. This castle has played so many roles, from medieval fortress to royal residence; it must have seen so many courageous battles and fearless knights, withstood many violent attacks and horrendous enemies.

You should not be expecting luxury as it was a defense fortress, you should not be expecting cobwebs and kitsch decorations. This castle has an impressive Gothic architecture that has been enhanced over the centuries, it has a beautiful location in a mountain pass and history that won’t disappoint.

Landscapes from Bran-Moeciu

Due to its lovely landscape and charming people, Bran-Moeciu is one of the most popular touristic areas in Brasov County and the ideal place to spend a great week-end or your holidays.

One can say that nature has been generous with this area because it is surrounded by the impressive silhouettes of the massifs Bucegi and Piatra Craiului, two of the most important elements in the Romanian mountainous touristic scenery. The landscape from this area is a harmonious mixture of different land forms (high mountains, plateaus, the curvy shapes carved by the rivers along their banks and the valleys that cross the land, shaped by the rich hydro-graphic network).
