Is Dracula's castle any good or just a cheap tourist trap? What about the small villages tucked in Transylvania? How does the famous Transfăgărășan highway look like? Is Città Alta as beautiful as they say? Soon I'll be able to answer these questions from my point of view..

Tomorrow, we're departing to Romania with a short stop in Italy (Bergamo) on our way back. You can expect new photographs on Instagram and, when we're back, new shots on this blog. During the next week and a half we'll travel to country's capital and then around Transylvania. From Dracula's castle to a charming city of Brasov and through the tucked villages in Carpathian mountains and back to Bucharest through the "the best road in the world" as proclaimed by Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear. The route may change as we'll still figuring out the best sights to visit like Haunted Hoia Baciu Forest located near Cluj-Napoca and.. few more. For the time being watch the below movie about the region we'll be visiting. It's pretty good!
