This is the whole reason for the trip. To visit Transylvania which is made famous by Dracula. The 14th century castles at Rasnov and Bran appeared to be ready made for Dracula movie. We went to Sinaia palace, Bran castle and lastly the monastery in Rasnov. The castles are quite apart but we managed to visit all of them by joining the visit organised by Kismet Dao (the hostel we stayed in Brasov). Vlad Tepes (Dracula) used Bran castle as headquarters of his incursions into Transylvania. The Bran castle was built in 1212 (ages ago) and it is now filled with Queen Marie's belongings. If any of you going to Romania, this is a must visit place!!
