Learn More about Bucharest

Known as "Little Paris" thanks to its palaces and beautiful buildings from the beginning of the 20th century, Bucharest is an elegant and majestic city with an exciting history to tell its visitors. Capital of Romania, Bucharest is business and cultural center of the country. Although it remains a great unknown for many, the city has seen a significant increase in the number of tourists visiting in recent years and has gradually become one of the references in Southeast Europe. The capital has a mixture of buildings that surprises by its variety. You will find bourgeois palaces that recall the city's period of maximum splendor despite its current decadent appearance, as well as mega-constructions of communist blocks whose walls house the darkest chapters of its past. One of the country's greatest attractions is undoubtedly Bran Castle. Located on a cliff, Bran Castle, or Dracula's Castle, is a legendary place and the most popular fortress in Romania. During the visit through the narrow corridors of the castle that will lead you to discover the different rooms, you will see many medieval furniture that will transport you to the past when the castle was inhabited and full of life. Among the different rooms visited during the tour, there is one dedicated to the legend of Vlad the Impaler and the myth of Dracula, as well as a room dedicated to imaginative instruments of torture, which became fashionable at the time. The castle overlooks a central courtyard in which the trials of those accused of heresy were held. Reality or fiction? If the real Dracula, Vlad Tepes ("the impaler" ), never lived in Bran Castle, it is this place that inspired Bram Stoker's terrifying novel.
