Visiting a local vineyard and sample some Sparkling wine, tours of Bucharest and Brasov, “Dracula’s” Bran castle and more.
Every known superstition in the world is gathered into the Carpathians, as if it were the centre of some sort of “imaginative whirlpool.” So says the narrator of Dracula, the late 19th century novel of Victorian superstitions that used this area of Romania to represent something on the edge of civilization. A trip to this part of the world is to enter a maelstrom of natural sensation.
There is a bewildering mass of flora and fauna everywhere. Profusions of trees and flowers and grasses are barely touched by agricultural exploitation. Be alert, however, for roe deer and chamoix, plus the sight and sound of the area’s 190 bird species. Transylvania is a country full of beauty of every kind, sometimes little towns or castles on the top of the steep hills.
