Decent accommodation with very spacious rooms. A short walk from the town, and within walking distance of Peles Castle and Pelisor Palace. A very hearty Romanian-style breakfast is served at extra cost. Staff was efficient and professional, but it didn't feel as cozy or personal as other places we have stayed in Romania.

Wished we could've had a bit more time in Romania as it was so beautiful, but onwards and ...
... when it was in the shadow of a haunted house, and countless tacky touristy stalls. The worst part of it all is the fact that Bran Castle doesn't even really have a connection with Vlad Tepes - the only possible link is that he may have spent a few nights in the castle at one point.
But don't let that stop the massive tourist machine from continuing to push the hype, using it to extract every possible dollar out of the thousands of people ...
I woke up early on Sunday morning. I was being picked up at 9:00 am by my guide to go looking at several castles and fortresses. I was ready in plenty of time, because I was so excited. I am so glad in hindsight that I hired a guide, because if I had attempted to do this on my own, I would not have been able to see half of what I did.
My guide, Bogdan, met me at the door. He was close to my age and so I found our conversations ...
