From Bucharest: 4-Day Bucovina & Transylvania TourExplore the idyllic scenery of the unique painted monasteries of Bucovina!
Discover 2 of the most beautiful regions of Romania on a 3-day, 2-night tour of Bucovina and Transylvania. See 3 famous painted monasteries, visit the land of Count Dracula, and enjoy landscapes as you drive through beautiful and picturesque countryside.
On the first day you will start the tour heading from Bucharest to the North, to Bucovina region in the north-east part of Romania. This is regarded as one of the most beautiful areas of the country. You will have the chance to admire the Eastern side of the Carpathian Mountains and the country-side landscapes, stopping in Gura Humorului where you can enjoy a good rest for the next day.
During the second day you will visit the most picturesque treasures of Romania: the Painted Monasteries of Bucovina, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. Their exterior walls are painted with 15th-16th century frescoes featuring portraits of saints and prophets, scenes from the life of Jesus, images of angels and demons, heaven and hell. Masterpieces of Byzantine art, these churches are one-of-a-kind architectural attractions in Europe. The most beautiful monasteries we will visit are: Voronet – known as “The Sistine Chapel of the East”, an emblematic painted church built more than 500 years ago, with well preserved frescoes, Sucevita – where you will visit the largest painted convent, very similar to a fortress, and Moldovita, with its golden and deep blue paintings on the exterior walls, completed in the 16th century. You will end the day in Piatra Neamt, a city at the foothill of Ceahlau mountains, or in a city closer to Transylvania.
The third day will get you to the legendary land of Transylvania and its UNESCO World Heritage Sites, passing stunning mountain landscapes and attractions, such as Bicaz Canyon and The Red Lake (the largest natural mountain lake in Romania). Later on, you will explore charming Sighisoara, one of the most beautiful, best-preserved and still inhabited medieval citadels in Europe, the authentic Saxon houses of Prejmer and fortified churches. In the evening, you will arrive at Brasov, a medieval city founded by german colonists in the 13th century.
In the fourth day you will explore Prahova River Valley in the Carpathian Mountains, visiting Dracula’s Castle in Bran, then Brasov city, where you will enjoy a walking tour in the Old Town area, and then Sinaia with the stunning Peles Castle – the former Royal summer residence. You will arrive in Bucharest in the evening, passing by the main attractions of the city.
