* Please note that the day trip to Bran and Braşov has limited capacity and is expected to be filled fast, hence, it is recommended to book your tour as soon as possible.
The Bran Castle has become a destination for over 500,000 visitors each year who can delight in countless activities such as music festivals, children's pageants, and food fairs. Recognizing that Bran was the inspiration for Dracula's Castle in the Bram Stoker's celebrated novel, "Dracula", visitors can enjoy rooms dedicated to Transylvania's most famous count… and, in the coming months, dine in Queen Marie's Tea House and ride a glass elevator to experience "Dracula's escape route".
We invite you to experience the history, the myth, the intrigue and the magic of this wonderful place and its Queen. We hope that you will carry the spirit that makes us love the Bran Castle with you, always.
