DAY 2, October 31, Sibiu - Bran - Brasov - Sighisoara

Ritual Killing of a Living DeadExplore today Transylvania’s symbol, Bran Castle. It owes its fame both to its unique charm and to the myth Bram Stoker created around Dracula. The impressive edifice dates back to 1377. Queen Maria of Romania, the niece of Queen Victoria of Great Britain turned the castle into a beautiful summer residence. Close to the castle, there is a shrine that is set in the wall of a mountain which once sheltered her heart. Lunch can be enjoyed in Bran village. Cheese tasting is strongly recommended as the village is renowned for the delicious home made traditional cheese assortments produced here. The ones smoked in pine tree bark are particularly delicious. Visit next Horror House, located in the vicinity of the castle, a special treat dedicated for the strong hearted.
Your next stop is the Medieval Saxon City of Brasov, one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe, home to the impressive Black Church, the largest gothic edifice in South Eastern Europe. Continue your journey with Sighisoara Citadel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded by Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara still stands as one of Europe’s most beautiful inhabited fortified citadels. Sighisoara is also the place where Vlad the Impaler, also known as Dracula, was born.
   Get ready then for the Halloween Party: a delicious traditional Romanian festive dinner washed down with fiery spirits, excellent Romanian wine and accompanied by a special programme including the Ritual of Killing of the Living Dead, the  Witch Trial, Dracula’s Wedding, Romanian Folk Show and many dark surprises.
  If you survive you’ll find refugee in a 3* hotel located in the very heart of the medieval citadel.

DAY 3, November 1, Sighisoara - Cluj-Napoca

Dracula Restaurant
Enjoy medieval charm at its best, visit Sighisoara’s main tourist attractions: The Clock Tower, standing 60 meters tall on top of the citadel’s hill, it hosts a museum and offers a great view over the citadel.
