The Palace of Peles is a masterpiece of German Renaissance architecture. Once was the Romanian Royalty Summer residence and retreat.

Bran Castle is often referred to as Dracula's castle. Originally built as a fortress for the Knights of the Teutonic in 1212. It was later re-built in 13 C by the Saxons to protect the city of Brasov. Some versions refer to Bran Castle as the base for Vlad Tepes; although this point is heatedly debated among Dracula fans. One of the most picturesque castles in Romania, sitting on a hilltop with magnificent views.
