Bran and Peles in one day

by Zavo

Hello,

Is it possible to visit Bran Castle and Peles Castle in one day from Brasov, by public transport? And if not, which one is nicer to visit?

Re: Bran and Peles in one day

by adema29

The best solution is to rent a car in Brasov and do a day trip around.
You'll find a lot of other interesting places there, not only those two castles.
I can reccommend you some if you want, or you can go and take a look at our pages about the area. http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/bf576/7f239/

Another solution is to arrange with a taxi driver a "private" arrangement. I am sure that it will not cost you much.

I have always preferred Peles, which is special, but both of them are nice.

Re: Bran and Peles in one day

I like both but Peles is my favourite.
Why?

Peles is not a very old castle but beautifully made and in a magnificent setting of park and woods. It is packed with art and decorations. It's also really interesting to see how these people lived and it gives an insight into Romanian history and how its royalty came about. In effect, you learn what Romania's place was in Europe and you come away with more respect and recognition for the country itself.

Now, one thing I am racking my brain about: I know that Peles caste was the very first castle to have an elevator. Or was it a vacuum cleaning system? Both? Definitely one or the other!

yes , it is possible

Peles castle is not always open to the public. It depends on which of the royal family is visiting. In my opinion, Peles is nice, but is rather modern. I enjoyed the asthetics of Bran more.

I'd recommend renting a car for the day. That way you can visit Sinaia, Peles, Bran and Rasnov possibly in one day if you get an early start.

Re: Bran and Peles in one day

by canadianinromania

If you are staying at a hostel (kismet Dao for example) they arrange day trips to see both these; plus Rasnov fortress.
By public transport you can not get both done in a day.
As someone said; taxi; car rental or the hostel day trips is your best bet.

As for the comment about not being open in regards to Royal visits; not quite accurate. It is closed on Monday's in the main season; and Mon/Tues. in the offseason. Watch out in November though; they normally close it for the entire month.

Have fun.

Re: Bran and Peles in one day

by DSwede

Yes, regular closures on Monday/Tuesday depending on the season. I didn't mention this since I thought the poster would have done their homework on normal operating hours.

A few friends of mine and I went to Peles on a Thursday. I remember this vividly since it was his birthday and we had a party to go to that night. The palace was closed to tours since it was occupied by some of the family. We were given rain checks to come back and visit on Friday. But we were allowed to walk the exterior of the palace.

Travel Tips for Brasov

Council Square (Piata Sfatului)

by Fam.Rauca

The Council Square is a triangular place, situated in the middle of Brasov, and surrounded by several Renaissance, baroque and neoclassical edifices.

The place is dominated by the yellow building of the old city hall that is, at the present, the domicile of the County Historical Museum.

Numerous restaurants and shops flanked the square that is for many people a place to relax and to witness.

A modern pyramidal fountain is also placed in the centre of the place.

A lot of important events take place here, during the year, and they are a large attraction for the visitors. The Square is placed in the old part of the city, at the foot of the Tampa Peak, next to the famous Black Church.

Romanian currency: Leu (RON)

by HORSCHECK

Although Romania joined the European Union (EU) on the 1st of January 2007, they don't have the Euro as currency. Romania is planning to join the Eurozone in 2014.

Since the 1st of July 2005 the official Romanian currency is the Leu (Plural: Lei), which is divided into 100 Bani. The ISO code for Lei is RON (Romanian New Lei).

Before this date the curreny was also called Leu, but had four more 0, which means 1 new Lei equals 10.000 old Lei. The ISO code for the old Lei was ROL (Romanian Lei).

You can get your Romanian money with a credit or debit card from cash points or just by exchanging your local money at one of the bureaux de change.

Surroundings - Prejmer

by josephescu

Prejmer is located 18 km northeast of Braºov, and hosts the most important entrenched church in Transylvania. And the best preserved one, considering it dates back from 1225.

Travelling around Brasov

by mvtouring

Within Brasov you can use the public transportation i.e. buses, trolleybuses and the tram or taxis.

Public transportation in Brasov is very extensive and runs late into the night (there are specialized all-night services too). It is cheap also, even though not particularly comfortable due to ageing infrastructure. Run by RAT Bv (Regia Autonoma Transport Brasov), the network is made up of trolleybuses, buses and trams, like in most other Romanian cities. You should buy tickets from specialized RATBv kiosks or from newsagent's kiosks, but remember to punch them when on the bus. Even though there are no ticket gates when entering the vehicles it's wise to have a valid ticket because controllers are abundant, and they will land you with a fine. When someone requests your ticket, always ask to see an ID.

Just down the street from city center

by midnight_mike about Saloon Pub

There is nothing special about this restaurant, but it does get crowded at night. Most of the people here just drink. It is a good meeting place as it is easy to find, just a half-block from the city center.
