To go to Bran from Bucharest take a train to Gare de Nord to Brașov. Will take about three hours. Then take a cab or a mini-bus. Regular buses go to Bran from Brașov (and back) from Autogara 2 throughout the day. Another easy way to go there is to rent a car.
Bran is a small village you can walk around. There are some other nice places to see around Bran, like Râșnov, for this you can take a taxi or local bus (50 meters north of the entrance to the castle).
- Bran Castle (Castelul Bran). More commonly referred to and marketed as "Dracula's Castle". In reality, Vlad Ţepeș never called that castle home, and it is unknown whether he even visited. You are limited to a single pathway taking you through the castle, with many interesting sights and areas roped off or locked.
After visiting the Castle, spend some time also in the Bran Village Museum, located in the Castle's park. It presents you pieces of the history of this old Transylvanian village.
There is a market near the Castle. The souvenirs are quite "kitschy", but you can get one.
There is a Kürtős kalács place in the center of town, very recommended.
There are plenty of pensions and camping places.
