We continued on to Sinaia where Peles Castle is, but a combination of the extra mileage I put on the bad road, the late start, and the traffic on the highway, left us missing a tour of the castle. Actually we had selected Bran Castle as our Romanian castle to tour but we did take in the sites at Peles this morning before moving on.
Peles Castle at Sinaia is such a beautiful place with its gardens and Palace that looks a lot like the Chateau at Lake Louise.
We then headed for Rasnov where we had selected a B&B to stay at. Once located we then headed out for Bran Castle to tour. Bran castle has the legacy of being the home of Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula. You will have to read the information on the picture explanation for full details.

This castle was home to many different people. Queen Maria, King Ferdinand, The Teutonic Knights, and the Count.

We also visited the fortress at Rasnov on the recommendation of Mike and Ruby. While it was impressive from it’s presence on the hill overlooking the town, it is in very poor shape with many areas under renovation.
