One of the most spectacular castles in Europe, it amazes its tourists with its impressive architecture, the details of the decoration elements and a truly spectacular natural setting. Peles Castle was built to become the summer residence of King Carol I of Romania and had a cultural, administrative and symbolic purpose. It was built between 1873 and 1914 on an area of 1000 hectares, located on the property of Piatra Arsa or, as it was then called Sinaia. The grand architecture is the work of Karel Liman and Johannes Schultz.

It was opened to visitors in February 1993 and is an important component of the cultural heritage of the Romanian people. This building is part of the vast architectural ensemble created by King Charles I and was built between 1899 and 1902 as a gift from King Carol I of the Prince.
The medieval center of Brașov
Sfatului Square, located in the middle of the historic center of Brasov, has been an important commercial, social and cultural center over time. The imposing and medieval aspect of the square is given by the architecture of the houses that surround it, historical buildings that date back centuries. Here is the Black Church, the parish church of the Evangelical Lutheran community in Brașov, located in the center of Brașov, which is in the Gothic style.
In the medieval center there are many restaurants, cafes, pastries and shops.
Rather associated with the myth of Dracula as a result of the homonymous novel by the author Bram Stoker, the history of the Bran settlement (gate in Turkish) begins in the time of the Teutonic Knights, in the XXIII century, as a simple fortress. Only a century later, the locals of Brasov received the right to build a castle that was completed in 1388.
The transfer from Bran to Bucharest takes approximately 3-3.5 hours.
