What to expect

The Real Dracula Tour is a small group full-day tour from Bucharest to Targoviste, Curtea de Arges and Poenari Fortress. The reason it is called “the real” Dracula is that you will visit the real places in Romania that have a connection with Vlad the Impaler – “the real” Dracula.

The first stop will be in Targoviste, the former capital of Wallachia under Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler) to visit the former Princely Court and Chindia Tower, nowadays a symbol of the city.

Then, you will go to Curtea de Arges to visit one of the most beautiful monasteries in South Romania. 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 the remarkable scenery over the mountains and hear the tumultuous story of Vlad the Impaler, one of the most intriguing figures in Romanian history.

The highlight of our trip will be Poienari Fortress, which is a special place, where you can get only after climbing the 1480 steps through the cool forest and once you reach the top you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Carpathian Mountains and a glimpse of the popular Transfagasaran Road. Prepare to admire the remarkable scenery over the mountains and hear the tumultuous story of Vlad the Impaler, one of the most intriguing figures in our history.

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”.

The tour ends after returning to Bucharest.
