Your Transylvania Christmas Market Holiday Overview

The name “Transylvania” may instantly conjure images of spooky castles and bloodthirsty vampires, but the dark past that has inspired this picture is just one of the many reasons to visit this fascinating and beautiful region of central Romania. Set amidst the magnificent Carpathian Mountains, Transylvania is home to breath-taking scenery, imposing fortresses and even an abundance of native wildlife. Its medieval and Saxon towns are wonderfully preserved, and are the perfect place to uncover the essence of Romania as you wander through their charming cobbled streets and characterful squares, stopping to visit quaint cafés and old churches and absorbing the magical charm of Transylvania at Christmas time. On this 3-night tour, get to grips with the real Transylvania, as you explore the historic towns of Brasov and Bran and visit Dracula’s Castle. We’ll also have some leisure time to do some shopping and sightseeing in Brasov’s charming old town and its glittering Christmas Markets. Join us on this short but unforgettable adventure to discover how bewitching Transylvania can truly be.
