Day 1 Bucharest

Hotel transfer from the airport.

Palace of the Romanian Parliament has a floor area of 360,000 square meters – setting the world record for the largest building for civilian use.

Measures 270 m by 240 m, 86 m high, and 92 m underground. It has 1,100 rooms and is 12 stories tall, with four additional underground levels currently available and in use, with another four in different stages of completion.

New Old City a decade of refurbishment has resulted in a charming, walkable quarter with enough sights to keep you occupied for the day and enough bars and clubs to ensure you never get bored.


Day 2 Bucharest to Brasov

Cheia Mountain Road –  Over 100 km road, mostly with curved and spectacular scenery, crossing the Oriental Carpathians.

Bran Castle – the mysterious land of Transylvania, where bloodthirsty vampires hide, dressed as little “dead” riding hood and ready to experience the holiday for the first time at none other than Dracula’s Castle.

Built on the site of a Teutonic Knights stronghold dating from 1212, the castle was first documented in an act issued by Louis I of Hungary on November 19, 1377, giving the Saxons of Kronstadt (Brasov) the privilege to build the Citadel.

Brasov City – the location of the city is at the intersection of trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire and Western Europe.

Stroll around the old Town Hall Square where you can admire colorfully painted and decorated trimmed baroque structures. Take a peek inside the Black Church, the largest gothic church in Romania. Its name derives from damage caused by the Great Fire of 1689, when flames and smoke blackened its walls. The interior is impressive and well-kept and houses one of the largest organs in Eastern Europe.


Day 3 Brasov to Sibiu

The Sighisoara Medieval Citadel Considered one of Europe’s beauties, Sighisoara is a monument city protected by UNESCO since 1999 and included on the list of the world patrimony.

In the heart of Transylvania, a fortress built in the 12th century will captivate you like no other city in Romania. The narrow streets, the charming buildings, the symbolic towers or the medieval churches.

Sibiu City – was voted as Cultural European Capital in 2007 and named by Forbes as “Europe’s 8th most idyllic place to live”.

Parts of the old fortifications remain, and many of the medieval houses within the walls are historical monuments.


Day 4 Sibiu to Ranca

The city of Alba Iulia, Alba County is one of the most important urban centers of Romania, a place of monumental historical significance, associated with the Great Union of 1918 and the coronation of the kings Ferdinand I and Mary, the first monarchs of Greater Romania. Its ancient medieval center, the Alba Carolina fortress, encloses between its walls several centuries old attractions laden with history, including Saint Michael’s Cathedral.

Transalpina road is the highest road in Romania. It’s one of the famous Romanian high-altitude roads. With a length of 146 km, it goes through the Carpathian Mountains, reaching a maximum altitude of 2,145m above sea level in Pasul Urdele. In 2009 it was completely paved. A quick glance at the map at its sheer drops and serpentine twists and turns, confirms that this is no hype.

Besides the natural beauties offered by this road, that seems to be made for a ride by motorbike, the road itself has a history at least as beautiful. Built by the Roman Legions, the road has been called Coridorul IV Roman by the historians.


Day 5 Ranca to Dubova

Getting down from the spectacular road that crosses the Parang mountains, we arrive in Orsova, a marina town at the Danube. There’s a gate that will take us to a region called Cazane.

Cazane are a part of the Danube Defile when you cross the Carpathians. They are about 9 km in length. In some places the Danube becomes narrower to 230m, making navigation difficult. The river is bordered by cliff walls. The maximum depth is about 75m. In the Cazane area, the flow speed of water exceeds 5m/second.

Near the city of Orsova, you can see the rock sculpture of Decebalus is a 42.9 m in height and 31.6 m in width carving in rock of the face of Decebalus, the last king of Dacia.


Day 6 Dubova to Bucharest

After that, we’ll hit the road to Bucharest, on the left share of Danube to Drobeta Turnu-Severin, crossing the Oltenia region, where we’ll visit Slatina, a wine-growing region. Then, we’ll come closer to Bucharest where we’ll spend the night.


Day 7 Bucharest

Hotel transfer to the airport.
