PRIVATE TOUR One of the most imposing historical monuments of Romania is in Bran-Rucar Pass. Bran Castle is located about 30 km away from the city of Braşov, on the road that goes through the old Bartolomeu neighborhood and connects Braşov to Campulung Muscel, the first capital of Wallachia, where the Piatra Craiului Mountains meet with the Bucegi Mountains. Built on a cliff, the castle now houses the Bran museum, a museum that spans its four floors. And although foreign tourists come annually in search of Count Dracula's legend, and the guide emphasizes his mythical side, the history of Bran Castle fascinates them alike. This is a private tour you can customize your visit time at each stop and you can request any visit to nearby points of interest

In the morning, you will meet your guide at the meeting point, situated in the city center. You will then go to a nearby restaurant to have your first taste of local food. Situated in the heart of Brasov, this restaurant is famous for its quiet atmosphere and good food, made only with locally sourced ingredients. The choices can vary but please advise if you prefer a vegetarian menu. You will then hop on the public transport which will take you to a less known part of the city. The restaurant you will visit is a perfect representation of how life was more than 30 years ago. The food that is served here is a delicious representation of the communist times, although, let's be honest, it's much more than what people had back then. After another ride using the public transportation, you will arrive at the last restaurant, a unique place famous for being one of the most bike-friendly places in town. The interior and the nice reinterpretations of local food will end this tour.
