Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK to Bucharest
  • ​After your flight to Romania's capital Bucharest, we will transfer you to your hotel, and your sightseeing starts immediately with a panoramic tour en route.
    On arrival at the hotel, settle into your room then join your fellow travellers for a welcome drink. We'll then head off for a walking tour of Bucharest's Old Town, taking in sights such as Stravapoleos Church, which is decorated in stone and wood carvings, the elegant National Bank building and lively Lipscani Street. We'll enjoy dinner this evening in a restaurant in the city.​
  • DAY 2 Christmas Eve Bran Castle & Brasov
  • We've a day of exploration ahead of us today as we discover the highlights of Transylvania. Our first stop is Bran Castle, which is nestled in dense forest. Surrounded by legend and mystery, it is also known as Dracula's Castle, and is one of the locations linked to the fictional vampire created by Bram Stoker. Built in the 14th century, it actually doubled as an administrative building until it was gifted to Queen Marie of Romania in 1920. We'll step inside to see her fascinating collection of art and furniture on a tour. 
    Next we'll head to the medieval town of Brasov for a walking tour of its Old Town. Highlights include the Black Church, which is home to what is considered one of the largest church organs in Europe, and the town's atmospheric Christmas market. Set amongst medieval buildings, the scene here is that of a magical winter wonderland. 
  • DAY 3 Christmas Day Bucharest
  • ​It's Christmas Day and this morning we will have the chance to attend Mass at an Orthodox church in Bucharest's Old Town. After this we will head to an American-style steakhouse for our Christmas lunch.
    The afternoon is free for you to spend as you wish. Perhaps you'll visit Bucharest's Christmas market, where even today you can pick up traditional handicrafts and local delicacies.
    We'll get together back at the hotel for dinner this evening.
  • DAY 4 Boxing Day Bucharest & Snagov
