Transylvania! You will encounter here the land of once-upon-a-time… with valiant princes, fair princesses, mighty kings and beautiful queens… but also blood thirsty devilish creatures lurking in the dark corners to feast themselves with your blood…. Count Dracula will give you the cold kiss of death when you visit his den, the Bran Castle! Watch out! We will teach you everything there is to know how to protect yourself against the deadly encounter.
You will visit medieval fortresses where one can imagine the brave knights fighting against the Ottomans menace to protect the Christian faith, you will learn about living in medieval times, about the rich history and deep culture of Romania. If you are interested in modern history, we will open the doors to a very recent regime, the communist period, where everything was for the people, made by the people. Was it good or bad, it is up to you to decide after we tell our own lived stories.
During your stay you will understand why the Romanian language is so close to Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, you will know how to order the delicious local beers like Ursus, Ciuc, Timisoreana or the local wine Feteasca Neagra, Busuioaca de Bohotin or the famous “medicine”, the plum brandy, Palinca.
You will fall in love with Romanian rural landscape where it seems that time has stood still, with the bustling crazy night life in the capital, Bucharest, also known as the Little Paris.
