The resemblance of the mountain Horeb, Sinai peninsula, with the mountain in this part of Romania, stroke out the prince Michael Cantacuzino, during his pilgrimage to Jerusalem, so he called the monastery he built here after his return, Sinaia. At the end of the 19Th century, another prince, future king of Romania, Carol I, enchanted by the beauty of the surroundings built here Peles Castle, his summer residence. The castle is one of the nicest in Europe. Built between 1875-1883, mainly in German Renaissance style, the castle has 106 rooms, decorated with fine ornaments of inlaid wood, Murano and Venetian chandeliers and mirrors, a rich collection of arms and weapon, more than 800 stained glass windows and an original heating and cleaning system. In the park surrounding the big castle, there are the Castle Foisor, the Hunting Castle and Queen Maria favourite castle 'Pelisor'.

On 1920, the fortress was donated to the royal family and became its summer residence. Arranged by Queen Maria into a most romantic castles: the old garret became the fourth floor, the old cylindrical tower with defence gallery became an apartment, Gothic stone arches framed the entrance doors, stairs and boarded floors were rebuilt. In the afternoon, we will visit the city of Brasov, one of the seventh Saxon citadels of Transylvania, Kronestadt the largest town of Transylvania, in the Middle Age. Driving through the main roads, you'll discover its beauty and picturesque: the combination between new and old, blacken stone buildings and red bricks chimneys above the coloured tile roofs. Old fortification ruins of the former burg, the narrow and tortuous streets, the old baroque houses with their bulky arched gates, still, keeps in the downtown the mediaeval patina.

Meet the capital of Romania, Bucharest in half a day The legend says that a shepherd called Bucur, coming down from the mountain with his sheep, found here a nice spot between two rivers, Colentina and Dimbovita, which was a perfect place for him to settle. At first, he built a church, Bucur's church, then around this church developed a small village. Taking advantage of the friendly environment, the small village became along the centuries the nowadays city, one of the most interesting in Central Europe. From early spring to late autumn the whole city is in bloom, that why Bucharest it is known as the city of gardens. The tour will take you on the main boulevards to the ancient and newest sites of the city.
Bucharest – The Little Paris Calea Victoriei, under its old name 'Podul Mogosoaia' was laid down in the 17Th century in order to link the Princely Residence in Bucharest to the summer residence of Prince Constantin Brancoveanu at Mogosoaia. It developed, as known today, in the 19Th century, when it became 'the Princely Road'. Cantacuzino Palace belonged to a famous princely family who came in Wallachia from Greece in the 17Th century. The widow of G.G. Cantacuzino, former prime-minister and leader of the Conservative Party, married the greatest Romanian musician, George Enescu, against her family wish and nowadays the Palace became the Music Museum. The present ‘Museum of Art Collections’ is in the former Romanit Palace. Along Stirbei Street we arrive at Cotroceni Palace, a princely residence on Cotroceni Hill. The edifice had become later a second royal residence. After ample renovations following the earthquake that damaged it in 1977, Ceausescu made of it an official 'guest house'. In 1991 the Cotroceni Palace became the residence of the president of Romania. A necklace of lakes surrounds Bucharest and almost near all of them there is a monastery or a castle. Same as Brancoveanu's Castle build by the Lake Mogosoaia.
