The way to Rasnov Fortress, Bran Castle, Peles Castle and Prejmer Fortified Church in 2 days

by devilchui

Hi, I would like to go to Rasnov Fortress, Bran Castle, Peles Castle and Prejmer Fortified Church by bus/train/taxi from Brasov in 2 days. Would you please tell me the route? Thanks a lot!

Day 1: take an early bus from Brasov to Rasnov, visit the fortress, then take the bus from Rasnov to Bran, visit the castle and head back by bus to Brasov.

Buses to Rasnov and Bran (these towns are on the same route, all buses going to Bran pass through Rasnov) leave from Brasov's Bartolomeu bus terminal at least once every hour.

Day 2: early in the morning take a train to Prejmer , get to the village, visit the church, get back to Brasov by train and then catch another train to Sinaia (where the Peles castle is located).

Trains from Brasov to Prejmer run approx. every two hours (starting around 4AM) and there are trains from Brasov to Sinaia approx. every hour (see http://infofer.ro/ for more timetables).

If you are staying @ Kismet Dao Hostel in Brasov, they organize a tour that lets you see Bran, Rasnov and Peles in one day( 75 Lei for transport..about 17 Euro)
The other day you can visit Prejmer, and not be as rushed.

Even if you aren't staying there, you can email and try to arrange the tour anyways with them.

Have Fun,
PS..the monuments are closed on Monday's so avoid this day.

Travel Tips for Brasov

Full of history...

by pufunk

PELES CASTLE-Located in Sinaia(44 km from Brasov),is considered by many one of the most beautiful castles in all Europe.It was the final resting place for several Romanian monarchs including King Carol I,who died here in1914.The building of the castle began in1873(Viennese architect Wilhem Doderer).Several other buildings,annexed to the castle is:Guard's Chambers,Economat Building,Foisor Hunting House,Royal Stables,and Electrical Power Plant.Karel Liman would later supervise the building of Pelisor('89-1903,the future residence of King Ferdinand and Queen Mary of Romania).The castle was built in wood,stone,bricks and marble and comprises more than160 rooms.The representative style used is German Renaissance,but can discover elements belonging to the Italian Renaissance,Gothic,German Baroque and French Rococo style.Peles is surrounded by seven terraces decorated with statues(sculptured by the Italian,Romanelli),stone-made-wells,ornamental vases and Carara marble.The architects used an abundance of wooden decoration,both for the exterior and for the interior of the castle,which confers a special quality to the building.Quite outstanding are the Big Armory Room,the small Armory Room,Florentine Room,Reception Room,Moresque Room,French Room,Turkish Room,Council Room,Concert Room as well as the Imperial Suite.Other exquisite attractions such as the statues,ceramics,gold and silver plates,the Meissen and Sevres porcelain,Murano crystal chandeliers,German stained-glass windows,walls covered with Cordoba leather,ebony and ivory sculptures,as well as the extensive weapon collections are worth mentioning.Peles Castle shelters one of the most important and most valuable painting collections in Europe,almost 2.000 pieces.Almost adjacent to Peles Castle is Pelisor("Little Peles").with 70 rooms feature a unique collection of turn-of-the century Viennese furniture and Tiffany,Lalique glassware.Near Peles castle is Foisor,a kings' residence with 42 rooms designed in the Swiss style. DRACULA'S CASTLE
Situated between Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Mountains, right where you enter Rucar-Bran
The first documentary attestation of Bran Castle is the letter written in 1377 by the Hungarian Ludovic I D'Anjou
At the end of the 14th century, king Sigismund gave up the leadership of Bran Fortress in favor of Mircea cel Batran.
The Fortress had an essential role in protecting the Hungarian king from the Ottomans and Tartars' invasion, coming from Wallachia through Rucar Pass. That's the reason why the inhabitants of Brasov built the Castle on their own work and expenses.
Iancu de Hunedoara fortified Transylvania's borders and also the towers of the Bran Castle. He made sure the rights of the peasants were respected by the boyars who ruled the fortress. However, there were frequent fights between merchants and boyars.
In 1498 the fortress passed under the merchant's possession and it was used mainly for treading. You should also know that it was a time when in charge of the leadership was a judge called "Judele Brasovului". Responsible for the defense of the castle was the permanent garrison: 2 guards and 10 - 20 archers and ballisters.
The boyars. had the right to collect fees from visitors and peasants. The fortress had an extra income from: selling cheese, milk and muttons and from manufacturing wood. The peasants fought against the aristocracy for several times. In 1514 they refused to take action against Gheorghe Doja.
In the 18th century the fortress was the house of the Austrians frontier guards. In 1836 Bran became the official border and the defense role of the fortress was no longer a priority. In 1920, the Brasov Town council donated Bran Castle to Queen Maria of Great Romania, who lived there with the royal family till 1947. Since 1947 the Castle is opened as a museum.

Free Brasov map

During our time in Brasov we used a free map from the Tourist Information Centre. The map also included some basic information about Romania, Brasov and the sights.

The Tourist Information Centre provides various free maps, brochures and magazines, not only about Brasov but also about other destinations in Romania.

Brasov's Tourist Information Center is located inside the Old Town Hall at the Town Hall Square (Piata Sfatului).

It is open from Monday until Sunday from 9:00 h until 19:00 h.

The Rope Street (Strada Sforii)

by Fam.Rauca

The Rope Street is known as the narrowest street in the Europe, with its wideness between 111 cm and 135 cm.

Its length is 80 m and lies between the Cerbului Street and the Poarta Schei Street.

The first documentary mention of the street was made in the 17th century.

The road was restored in the year 2003, when it gotten new illumination system.

When you go on this street, you can touch simultaneous, with your hands, the both roadsides.

Cheap food

by wodensson

Good value and very nice. The town square at Brasov is full of lovley
pavement cafe's. Sadly it also has them awful Irish and Scottish pubs
that sour most cities around the world. Who wants to travel around the
world to get burger and chips and a stale pint, aint that why we travel to
escape such things. Beer was around 50p a pint a meal £3.

Very nice place and beautiful terrasse

by Chrystalain about Millenium

Nice ambiance, good service. The food is very good. As for the terrasse, there is a fountain and it's covered... so even if it rains, you can enjoy fresh air! Sarmalute or turnedo Calypso! The first one is traditional romanian food : meat in cabbage roll. The other one is the MOST TENDER beef I ever eat... especially in Romania!

Also, Papanasi (say papanash), a romanian dessert. Order in the beginning of your meal, because it's very long to do. This is 2 dough with sour cream and jam... very very good!
