You will visit the bear reserve in Zarnesti, a wildlife sanctuary in the Carpathian Mountains. Here you will have the opportunity to see bears climbing trees, playing in the water pools or just lazing in the meadows.


Here’s the place where real bears and teddy bears live together. Visit the Teddy Bear Museum and see over 200 teddy bears from all around the world. Some of the main attractions are two giant bears which were a gift from the Royal Family of Great Britain.


Your itinerary continues to Bran Castle, which has entered the top of the world’s spookiest places as Dracula's Castle. Step inside the mysterious rooms and dark passageways to discover the legend of the most famous vampire. 


Next, you will proceed to Brasov. The city was founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211, and it’s surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. Walk on the narrowest street in Europe -  Rope Street, and take as many pictures as you can. Because this city is the point of connection between Transylvania, Wallachia, and Moldavia, you will find Romanian, German and Hungarian sweets made after original recipes.


Afterward, you will be transferred back to Bucharest.
