Day 1Bucharest – Sinca Noua (200 km)

The group decides as a whole, whether to visit Bran Castle (the so-called Dracula Castle, but you will experience the true history of the place) and the old town of Brasov, or Sibiu (European Cultural Capital in 2007) – or some of the smaller medieval villages of Transylvania.
