Once arrived in Bran, your guide will meet you (meeting point will be in your tickets) and your tour will start.
Five minutes walk and we will reach the royal garden surrounding Castle Bran.

This is a medieval fortress built 640 years ago by the king of Hungary at the time using the money collected from the Saxon and Hungarian nobles from Brasov. It is also the reason why 300 years later, the Council City of Brasov claimed the castle at is was in their property until 1920 when it was donated to the Romanian Royal family, Queen Maria of Romania, starting almost 100 years ago a massive restoration of the place .

The main reason of this imposing construction was to stop the Ottoman invasion in Europe.

When you arrive in Bran, you are at the gate of the old continent. Bran comes from the slavic word Brana which means ‘THE GATE’, so Bran Castle was not only the home of Dracula but also the gate of Europe for hundreds of years.

Your guide will walk you through the small rooms and narrow passages explaining in detail every corner of this beautiful medieval gem.
After the tour ends, you can walk around on your own for more pictures in the Royal garden, which is located on the bottom of the mountain, or you can relax at a cup of tea by Queen’s Tea House in the middle of the garden .

All this and much more about the history and legends of the place in your 1.5 hours tour inside the most popular castle in Romania.

We toured with a group of friends with Greg as our tour guide. He was awesome! The tour saved us a ton of time waiting in line and made the castle very interesting. I wouldn’t visit the castle without a guide. The castle only comes to life with a great guide!
