The Carpathian Mountains
The second-longest mountain range in Europe, the Carpathian Mountains display a unique variety of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife. Grasslands, gorges, subterranean caves, volcanic lakes, and extensive river network add to the richness of the park system that also includes the The Danube Delta.
The Carpathian Mountains are home to one of the largest undisturbed forests in Europe. 400 unique species of mammals, including the Carpathian chamois, call the Carpathian Mountains home. 60% of European brown bear population lives in the Carpathian Mountains.
Bran Castle, situated near Bran and in the immediate vicinity of Brașov, is a national monument and landmark in Romania, that owes its fame to its imposing towers and turrets as well as to the myth created around Bram Stocker’s Dracula.

At the bottom of the hill you can find a small open air museum park exhibiting traditional Romanian peasant structures (cottages, barns, etc.) from across the country.

It was he who inspired Bram Stoker’s fictional creation, Count Dracula.
If you come to Romania in August don’t miss the “Medieval Art and Theatre Festival” that takes place every year in the “Pearl of Transylvania” (Sighișoara), 100km from Sibiu. Actors wearing Medieval clothes play drama in the citadel and music bands play on an installed stage in the center of the city. Beer and “mici” (traditional prepared meat) are provided by all the brand name beer factories from Romania during the festival.
