Early morning departure for the mountain resort of Poiana Brasov, driving through Prahova Valley. A  perfect chance to relax in the quiet mountain resort town of Poiana Brasov, this two-day excursion takes you north from Bucharest and across the Carpathian Mountains into Transylvania.

En route, stop-over in Sinaia mountain resort, well-known as the "Pearl of the Carpathians". Situated on the outskirts of this resort city, amidst sculpture gardens and fountains, Peles Castle is an exquisitely detailed landmark. Rivaling the castle itself is the beautiful natural setting in which it stands. Once the summer residence of Romania's kings, this spectacular castle, built at the end of the 19th century, is now one of Romania's most beautiful museums. Boasting priceless collections of weaponry, hand woven silk rugs, and furniture, Peles Castle is a unique look back at life under monarchy.

A stop in Sinaia would not be complete without an hour spent visiting Sinaia Monastery, a copy of St. Catherine Monastery on Mount Sinai.

A short ride from Sinaia will take you to the fabled Bran Castle, also  known as Dracula's Castle, built at the beginning of the 13th century, by Knight Dietrich of the Teutonic Order. In 1377, the people of Brasov built a new citadel here to protect the way of access to their town. Later on it was fortified, its walls enlarged, and between 1920-1930, the Castle was used by the Romanian royal family, namely by  Queen Maria (a niece of Queen Victoria of England). Only in 1958 Bran Castle was turned into a museum and opened to visitors.

Finally, wind up the twisting roads leading to Poiana Brasov, placed high on a mountain plateau overlooking the city of Brasov and surrounded by the best ski mountains in the country.

The resort is also host to several athletic complexes with pools and training facilities. The clean crisp air of Poiana Brasov is known throughout the country.

Enjoy dinner and entertainment at a native restaurant.

Today, together with Poiana Brasov resort, it is regarded as the chief tourist area of Romania. You may visit the loftyBlack Church, so called because of a 1689 fire. It is famous for its imposing Gothic architecture, its 4000 pipe organ and the valuable collection of Anatolian carpets of the 17th and 18th centuries. Drive slowly to the old Schei District of Brasov, to visit St. Nicolas of Schei Church, built between 1518-1598, with the help of both Wallachia's and Moldavia's kings.

Late morning you will head to Sighisoara, a perfectly preserved town, trapped in the Middle Ages.
