The plan for that day was: Bran Castle, Peles Castle and Brasov. So our first stop at about 11 o'clock was at Bran village.

After entering the village we were very happy because we glimpsed the castle from far so we drove that way. But to make our way hard the villagers hadn't put a sign where the entrance is... So we were at the and of the village whene we realised that something is wrong:) We turned back and parked somewhere to ask where can we go in the castle... We were lucky, the place we stopped was pretty close to the entrance.

This castle is also called Dracula's Castle so we expected to see frightening things within. But the only thing which was a little bit like in a horror film was the music played in the men's toilet:P

The castle was very big from outside but you don't feel it when you're inside of it. I don't know how tall were the people when it was built but sometimes even I felt like I was in a cage. But it was interesting. We could even go through a secret path... it was a bit scary because the path was narrow and quite dark, but it was very fascinating, too.

After walking some minutes in the castle's park and making some photos at the little lake which was in the park too, we went back to the car to continue our way to Sinaia to visit the Peles Castle.
