TRIPS - Transylvania
THE VAMPIRE`S ROUTE


An exclusive tour for the ones interested in vampirism

There is indeed in Romania a very rich folklore relating to vampires, and until now, and in some regions of the country, it survived. This tour combines both a discovery of it across the country, as well as meetings with people believing in the "strigoi", and obviously traveling in the footsteps of Vlad the Impaler. Thrill but also "fun"!



J1Arrival in CLUJ NAPOCA (served by low-cost airlines and regular) in the heart of Transylvania, meet with your guide and transfer by small country roads until Tirgu-Mures. Accommodation downtown, dining restaurant in town.

J2 It is in Tirgu-Mures that were the last witch-burnings on pyres  in Europe, in 1752! The court and the building where this happened still exist and we take you there. Even if they know that episode of history, local and even national tourist authorities will never do its promotion! We continue our journey and arrival in Sighisoara, Medieval Citadel, UNESCO heritage, and where was born Vlad Dracul. Dine in the house where he spent his early years, and accommodation in 3 * hotel inside the citadel.

J3 The day of the Dracula legend, between reality and fiction: we leave Sighisoara, towards Brasov . The old town is dominated by Tompa hill where Vlad would have impaled the Saxon merchants.. Then Bran, the so-called castle of Dracula surrounded by all the "draculamania" - souvenirs, kitsch, to finally arrive  in Wallachia. Time to discover POIENARI, after climbing nearly a thousand steps in the forest you reach the ruins of the real castle of Vlad Tepes, a rocky promontory. It's from here that his wife, to escape the Turks, threw herself into the void. Dinner and overnight in the cosy town of Curea de Arges.

J4 There is still , in the 21st century, villages where family members of  deceased undig the corpses, snatch their hearts, burn and drink the ashes with water, for fear that they are vampires. Today we are going in one of these villages in the Danube plain, and try to go to meet its inhabitants, visit the cemetery. This village has hit the headlines a few years ago, corpses have been unearthed ... Dinner and accommodation in a  neighboring town.

J5 We leave the Wallachian plains back to Transylvania, and make an intermede sightseeing, shopping in Sibiu, one of the prettiest cities in Romania. Accommodation and dinner in Sibiel a nearby village, in the small guesthouse of Alexandru and Cristina.

J6 Back on the plateau of Transylvania, and passing through a village in the "judet" of Mures, away from the main roads and where lived a son of Vlad Dracula with a szekler princess . It seems that in this village "vampire folklore" has withstood the time, because a majority of its inhabitants have a strong belief in the "strigoi" and do not hesitate on certain nights, to put the garlic on their doors and windows. We will meet them, talk easily with them about their beliefs and customs. Dinner in Tirgu-Mures, but we return to the village and its cemetery at nightfall and later (depending on dates, according to beliefs of the inhabitants).
Overnight 3 * hotel in town.

J7 This morning, look at your reflection in the mirror...if none, we cannot do much about it...otherwise, welcome back in the world of the Living !- and transfer aeroport Cluj

This is an exclusive trip, some days really going off the beaten path, meeting others and their traditions and beliefs. Spontaneity and sometimes a bit of improvisation may be necessary  to preserve its authenticity.

Half board - sturdy breakfast, dinner with minerale water
