Tour of Transylvania – Highlights
The highlights of your perfect tour of Transylvania include places related to Vlad the Impaler, such as his retreat in the mountains, Poienari Fortress. You need to climb over 1400 stairs to reach the top, but the views are worth it.
You will also visit Snagov Monastery, Dracula’s alleged burial place. Explore Corvinesti Castle in Hunedoara and then enjoy a vampire menu at a Dracula-themed hotel and visit the Salt Mines in Turda.
Your tour of Transylvania also includes a visit to Sighisoara Medieval Citadel, Dracula’s birthplace. Visit the Clock Tower Museum, the Church on the Hill and the unique Covered Stairs. After that, head to Bran Village and visit the famous Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle.
Your next highlight is Sinaia, the pearl of mountain resorts in Romania. During our tours of Romania, visit the royal Peles Castle. If you attend our Halloween tours, you will visit Pelisor Castle, which is part of the royal residence complex of Peles Castle.
We also organize 3 Days short breaks. These tours usually include the main highlights of our complete experience. Depart from Cluj-Napoca or Bucharest and then visit Sighisoara Citadel and Bran Castle.
On Halloween, attend the parties organized in each location. If you are looking for a tour of Transylvania which includes access to a certain Halloween party, we recommend our 1 and 2-days Halloween tours.
Both types of tours include accommodation and meals. The 2-day tours also include transfer from Bucharest to Sighisoara or Bran.

Advice for Australians traveling abroad
According with Australian government the following advice are to be followed:
Before you go
- Confirm your passport is valid for 6 months from when you think your trip will end. Don’t get stranded.
- Get comprehensive travel insurance to cover you and your gear. Get insurance that’s right for you and covers your activities in the places you’ll go. Remember, regardless of how healthy and fit you are, if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel.
- Consider your physical and mental health. Get advice from your doctor if you’re unsure.
- See your doctor or travel clinic 8 weeks before you go for a basic health check
- Check if your medication is legal and available in the places you’re going. Take enough of your prescribed medicines to last the whole trip. Carry copies of your prescription and a letter from your doctor.
- Tell your bank you’re travelling and check if your cards will work. Have several payment options.
- If you’ll drive overseas check out the local traffic laws and practices. You’re likely to need an International Driving Permit (IDP) as well as your Australian driver’s licence.
- Share your itinerary with friends or family members. Give them copies of your passport
Holidays don’t always go as planned. If you’re going overseas, travel insurance is as important as a passport. Without it, you or your family could suffer financially if things go wrong. No matter who you are, where you’re going and what you’re doing, get insurance.
Travel insurance is especially important if you need medical assistance. Healthcare overseas can be very expensive. Most countries won’t give you free care, or subsidise the cost of your care. You, or your insurer, must usually pay full price.
Travel Advice for Australians visiting Romania
Keep your personal belongings close. Lock hotel and train compartment doors from the inside.
Drink spiking is an issue, especially in Bucharest’s Old Town. Don’t accept food, drinks, gum or cigarettes from people you’ve just met.
Dating and marriage scams occur.
Only use ATMs in banks, shops and shopping centres, especially at night. Always keep your credit card in sight. Be wary of people you’ve met online.
Penalties for drug offences are severe. They can include jail sentences of up to 20 years.
By law, you must always carry photo ID. Keep your passport in a safe place. Carry a photocopy.
It’s illegal to take photos of airports, military sites or other secure locations.
It’s illegal to engage in sex work or have sexual relations with a person under 18.
