The Real Dracula Tour – 11 hours
There is an Egyptian motto that goes like this: “Man fears time, but time fears the pyramids”. I think that in our case, we could easily say that “Man fears time, but time fears good legends,” Dracula’s legend being one of them and as Oscar Wilde said, it is probably the most beautiful novel of all time. Join us and find out the real story of Dracula in this only one day journey.

Bucharest – Targoviste – Curtea de Arges – The Stone Ravens Monastery –Vidraru Lake – Bucharest
The tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and you will head first to Targoviste, the former capital of Wallachia province, to visit the Princely Court, the place where the Wallachian rulers used to reign for centuries.
After this, the trip will continue with the visit at an architectural masterpiece in Curtea de Arges, where you will have the chance to see the beautiful Curtea de Arges Monastery. Beyond the impressive and unique architectural style, the monastery boasts an interesting legend about the builder of the church and all he had to do so he could, eventually, finish the work.
Prepare to admire a remarkable scenery over the mountains and the hear the tumultuous story of Vlad the Impaler, one of the most intriguing figures in our history.
The Stone Ravens Monastery is our next visit. Lying in a place as if chosen by the Divinity itself, the construction is remarkable by its complete simplicity that makes you meditate and introspect. Inspiring indeed.
Before getting back to Bucharest, you will stop at Vidraru Lake, an important construction from the communist period, placed next to the famous Transfagarasan Road, named by Top Gear as “the most beautiful road in the world”.
