Breathe the fresh air of coniferous woods in the country of Count Dracula, hike in the Carpathian Mountains, sample the famous wines of Hungary and gaze upon magnificent frescoes. Our trip to Hungary and Romania is an artful blend of culture, exquisite scenery, history and activity.

Our adventure in Transylvania begins in Bucharest, the capital of Romania. Onward through Transylvania, into the Carpathian Mountains, we encounter ancient pockets of European culture and sample the region's cuisine while sipping local wines in the ambience of a medieval castle. See the magnificent fortress-town of Sighisoara and walk through the grand square of Brasov. A true highlight is Bran Castle, a fortress atop a dramatic rock outcrop and more commonly known as Dracula's Castle. After exploring the magnificent painted monasteries of Bucovina, we continue to the remote and unspoiled Maramures region, home to the tall wooden churches and continue on to Tokaj, where we will sample the famous sweet white wines.

We conclude our adventure in the famed city of Budapest, the Pearl of the Danube.
