    Good Evening Transylvania

    July 5, 2016 in Romania

    We said goodbye to Belgrade and all of our wonderful friends there but we were sooo looking forward to the next stage of our adventure. We flew into Bucharest, Romania and met our guide Marin (arranged by our inn) at the airport. We immediately set out for Transylvania. He was so knowledgeable he had written his own guide book for Transylvania. As we drove through the beautiful Carpathian mountains, he told us about the unique history of Romania and the area of Transylvania. We stopped in Sinaia to visit the spectacular Peles Castle. It's very odd to find out that a lot of places in Transylvania have 3 names; one in Romanian, one in German and one in the local tongue. Talk about confusion. Glad we have a guide because we'd never find our way otherwise. We continued on until we came to the old town area of Brasov with its gothic Black Church and quaint center square. Finally, we arrived in Bran, the home of Bran Castle or otherwise known as Dracula's Castle. We were in awe of the view from our room. We overlook the castle and the idyllic village below the castle. The long day of traveling finally caught up with us as the sun set on the mountains above Bran Castle. Tomorrow we get to see it up close. We're just giddy with excitement. Or maybe it's just being slap happy from a lack of sleep.Read more

    Dracula's Castle

    July 6, 2016 in Romania

    We started our day with a visit to Bran Castle aka Dracula's Castle. No self-respecting tourist could pass up that opportunity. However, being the type of tourist who gets really annoyed at masses of tourists, we chose to go as soon as it opened for the day. Lucky for us we were able to zip thru with very little fanfare, snap some photos, explore a secret passage & admire the view from the castle windows. We finished in time to find a sidewalk cafe just as the masses began to line up. High-fives all around! Seriously though, the castle grounds are beautiful and the interior is set up so you get a feeling of what it would be like to live there. We spent the remainder of our day walking around Bran & relaxing at our Inn. It is so amazing to see that in this day & age farmers are still working fields with old fashioned scythes and horses are pulling large wagons piled high with hay. It seems that in many ways a visit to Romania is like stepping back in time. What's up for tomorrow? After a quick stop at the Rasnov Citadel, we head back to Bucharest to catch a flight to Copenhagen where we began.Read more

    Castelul Bran - das "Dracula-Schloß"

    October 6, 2017 in Romania

    Ein bisschen Touri-Klischee muss schon sein: Wer nach Transsilvanien reist, MUSS Schloss Bran (das "Dracula-Schloß") gesehen haben. Die Eigentümer-Familie hat das Anwesen sehr aufwändig und geschmackvoll renoviert. Mit "Graf Dracula" hat der ganze Spuk wenig bis gar nix zu tun. Bram Stoker hat die Landschaft wohl irgendwie inspiriert, obwohl er selbst nie dort war.

    The "Kaschtl"

    May 18, 2017 in Romania

    Nach kurzem Ponystreicheln ging es heute zum sagenumwobenen "Castelul Bran", in dem Graf Dracula sein Unwesen getrieben haben soll. So ein mystischer Platz voller Schrecken und Vampieren durfte auf unserer Tour natürlich nicht fehlen. Von dem ganzen Grauen ist in dem "Kaschtl" aber nichts zu spüren. Im Gegenteil, es erinnert eher an ein kleines, verwunschenes Prinzessinnenschloss oder ist zumindest nicht unbedingt das einzig sehenswerte Schloss in Transilvanien.

    Wer übrigens, wie wir, vergessen hat sich einen Walkman, der einem die Geschichte der Burg ins Ohr flüstert, von der Kasse mitzunehmen, tut gut daran, sich unter eine gleichsprachige Reisegruppe zu mischen ;-)
