Bran Castle

Bran is a village in the southern Transylvania, in the Brașov County. It is famous for the Bran Castle and an important agrotouristic place of Romania.

Get in

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.

Get around

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).



Inside the castle

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.
