Immerse yourself in the legends of Transylvania with a visit to Bran Castle and Râșnov Fortress. Departing from Braşov, the half-day hour tour begins with a stop at Râșnov to explore its imposing, 13th-century fortress. Next up is Bran Castle, also known as ‘Dracula’s Castle’ — a hilltop estate that conjures up visions of howling wolves and bats fluttering in the moonlight. Wander the castle’s Gothic chambers and learn about its ties to Bram Stoker’s undead antihero. Upgrade when booking your experience and extend your tour to the beautifully ornate Peleș Castle.

Turda Salt Mine it’s probably one of the most important and interesting places to see in Transylvania. According to the top of the most spectacular sights to see out there made by the site businessinsider.com, Turda Salt Mine is situated on the 22nd place. Salina Turda, located in Turda, Romania, is home to an underground theme park that's nestled inside one of the oldest salt mines in the world.  Turda Gorge. The canyon is nearly 3 km long, with 300 m high walls sculpted in weathered limestone. Bring the camera because you will be impressed with the work that a river did inside a mountain in hundreds of millions of years. At first sight, you will see two rocky massifs, which were once one and which were separated by erosion of Jurassic limestone rock by the river
