trip to Bucharest

by draclex

I want to make a trip in Romania, in Bucharest and maybe to see Dracula's castle. I saw something about it on WWW.hi69.tk but I want to know more. So anyone knows how far from Bucharest is Dracula's castle?

Re: trip to Bucharest

by leics

What has become known as 'Dracula's Castle' is in fact Bran Castle, situated near Brasov.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bran_Castle

It is about 168km from Bucharest.

There is at least one company which offers daytours from Bucharest which include Bran:

It is not necessary to make that type of remark.

When first posting on any new site it is common sense to be wary about how much information one gives. When I first joined VT I did not fill in my personal details.

And anyway, where the OP comes from is not in the least relevant in this case.

If you are interested in Dracula I would recommend to visit Sighisoara, his native town. It is very nice, and there you can see the house he was born, his museum etc.

Hello!
As far as I can find out there are some 120 km from Buchuresti to Pitesti, where you can go by bus, and from there ~35 km to Curtea de Arges where you probably have to take a local bus and alight in a village called Capatanenii. The citadel should be 1 km north from here but you have to walk. From the hydro plant there are 1480 steps to climb before you reach your target.

Regards Lars.

Indeed, Bran castle has got not much to do with dracula/vlad tepes. I don't know why it is so popular because, even though it certainly is beautiful, I didnt find it that interesting. I actually would not recommend it, certainly not if you have to come all te way from bucharest to come and see it. You'd better go to sinaia, see peles castle, maybe head on through bran and end up for a short visit to brasov. I dont know how much time you have, but sighishoara is definately worth a visit, although last time I visited (in october) they were re-paving the roads so it was all muddy and broken up.

Re: trip to Bucharest

by roxanana

actually i live in Bucharest and come from Brasov, so i can tell you about Dracula's castle (which is near Brasov)
from bucharest to brasov there are 166 km to drive, the road is fine except for the occasional traffic especially on fridays and saturdays when all the citizens of Bucharest head for the mountains for some fresh air. it shouldn't take more than 3 and a half hours normally (considering there are also speed limitations of 50 km/hour through villages).
oh and if you want to go by train, know that it might be an hour late at the most... cause of speed restrictions in a certain mountainous area.
once you get to brasov, visit the city center which is very much like any old european (more like germanic) town... and then you can head toward bran with a bus, i guess, cause there are no trains that way...

i'd be happy to tell you more if you still have questions

Travel Tips for Bucharest

The Botanical Garden

by ovidiu_nan

The Botanical Garden from Bucharest is a place worth visiting when you want to spend a few hours away from the atmosphere of the tiring city or when you are craving for a walk on green scented alleys. In exchange of a very small fee, you can enjoy a real oasis of peace and delight.
In spring, the flowers are astonishing visitors with their colours and smells, the contrasts are daring and the air is warmer and warmer. Definitely you should not miss the pleasure of a long walk in an old but still vivid garden.
Another important part of the botanical complex is the green house, the most imposing building in the yard. Here are both exotic and domestic plants, carefully look after by the employees. Their scientific names, their popular names and also their original area can be seen on small plates near them.
And finally, the garden has lots of sectors dedicated to ornamental plants, geographical groups, law protected plants and trees, rare flowers, useful plants, an Italian garden and many other beautiful sectors that are worth seeing.

Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry

by codrutz

Yet another shiny building (yes I admit I am a flower/cat/pictures/highrise buildings lover). This is the headquarter of the Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, a very important economic institution.

Snagov

by mvtouring

On an island in the middle of Snagov Lake stands Snagov Monastery, the reputed burial place of Vlad Tepes, also known as Vlad Dracula. Boatmen ferry you across for a negotiated price. Just 40 km (25 mi) north of Bucharest, the village of Snagov is a popular retreat for city dwellers.

If you like antiques...

by monica71 about Hanul cu Tei and Craii de Curtea Veche

There are several places in the city from where you can buy antiques. My favorite one, though, is
Hanul cu Tei, on Lipscani Street no 63. It is open Mon to Fri from 10:00am to 6:00pm, Sat from 10:00am to 3:30pm. The store is closed on Sunday.

Another good antiques store is also close by: Craii de Curtea Veche, on Covaci Street no 14.
They are open the same days and hours as Hanul cu Tei

Fly Taxi

by mauro_pd

Just a tangible & concrete information about taxi fares ... from OTP airport to Sofitel hotel in the night: 35 RON, an alternative is the Sofitel shuttle (usually waiting for airlines crew) but it's not such a cheaper one: 8 Euro ... make your choice :-).
BTW: these taxis have an automatic machine printing out the receipt with the exact amount you see on the display, which is not the case (example) in Italy.
