You will leave Bucharest, Romania bright and early and travel to Targoviste, a former capital. Vlad the Impaler ruled in the Old Princely Court. Tour this building and learn about the Impaler from the exhibits.
Enjoy the beautiful scenery as you travel to the foot of Fagaras Mountains. Explore the ruins of Poenari Castle built by Vlad the Impaler. It is a fortress on a high hill and it dominates the entire area.
Your final stop is Snagov, a small monastery on an island near Bucharest. This is where Vlad the Impaler aka Count Dracula is said to be buried, if, in fact, he is dead.
