For this trip I have chosen both Bucharest and the Carpathians. And for our trip on Saturday, Bran Castle🏰 (known as Dracula's castle) for the Halloween special tour 🎃, and the old town of Brașov (it's a really beautiful city that is worth visiting). We will go by ourselves, without any organized tourist trip. We will go by train and by bus, to make it more fun, and to have more freedom. Included in the price: ✔️ Accommodation (private rooms) ✔️ Day trip: Transport from Bucharest to Brașov and Bran castle, and back to Bucharest ✔️ Entrance fees to visit Bran For the accommodation there will be hotel double rooms, near the center of the city. What is not included: ✖️ food & drinks ✖️ flight tickets and transport to the hotel* ✖️ other activities *From the airport there is a bus that you can take to the city center (aprox. 30 minutes, about 2 euro) or you can take a cab that is faster (aprox. 15 euro) I am open to suggestions/other ideas, of course if the rest of the group agrees too.😊 I am super excited to get to know you and to show you my homeland, with some of my favorite spots!🤩

About me: I am Elena, a Romanian photographer 📸 and traveler. I have been living in Bucharest for 5 years, however I like to spend my summers at the seaside, either in Romania, or in Greece, doing photography. Now that the weather is not so appealing for swimming, it's perfect time for a short trip in the mountains.🏔️ My country has amazing views in the Carpathians, with lots of spooky stories with vampires 🧛🏻‍♂️, and recently with The Addams Family (Wednesday TV series was filmed in one of the castles in the Carpathians). Bucharest is also a cool, culturally diverse city, vibrant in energy.🌆 We can have a drink or two or more 😂 in the evenings.

Accommodation: Rooms are private (no sharing), double beds, with private bathroom as well. Also, they are all part of the same building, so it would be easier for us to find one another and gather for our trip to Bran 😊. The accommodation is near the center of the city, so it will be easy to go to most of the important places in Bucharest. Do you have a question? Ask in the Q&A section!

I really had a wonderful time on Elena's trip. She is friendly and open-minded, and the trip was full of fun, variety, and lots of activities and great food! She did a great job tailoring the trip to my interests and what I wanted to see more of. Because of her, I definitely have great memories of Romania! :)

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-2
We will all gather at the accommodation that is near the city center, in the afternoon (of course if your flight is later, we can make it in the evening too). After you leave your stuff, we can already go for a city short tour. We will wander around in the old town, maybe grab a drink🍸, have something to eat🥘 -- I'll introduce you to our traditional cuisine😋, get to know each other and discuss the plan for Saturday.

Bran Castle

Day 2
We will start early in the morning, at around 7 or 8. Our schedule is not set in stone, but it would be nice to be there early, so we can have more time for our trip. We will go by train, and our arrival time in Brașov will be at around 12. From there we will take bus to get us to Bran Castle🏰, which is 50 minutes away. We will spend about 2 hours at the Castle, and then we will come back to Brașov, where we will go for something to eat in the old town (which is stunningly beautiful).


Day 2
After eating and wandering around the old town, we will head back to the train station, and leave Brașov at around 7-8. We will be back in Bucharest in the evening at 10-11, so that gives us some time for more drinks in Bucharest, since it's Saturday🥳 (of course if you feel like).


Day 2-3
For the evening (if we feel like and we are not too tired) we can go for a drink... or more😂 in Control Club - one of my favorite places so far. It might be a bit crowded since it's Saturday, but the atmosphere is super friendly.😊 On Sunday, we can go to Cișmigiu Park, or wander, again through the old town, this time during day time, so we can better see the places.🌞 Of course, if you have to leave in the morning, we can say goodbye already. I am free all day on Sunday, so for those who plan to leave in the evening, we can spend the day together.
