Halloween in Transylvania (Southbound)

Halloween in Transylvania (Southbound)

Even without its bloodcurdling myths of Dracula, werewolves, haunted castles and curses, Romania is an atmospheric destination. And no more so on the spooky holiday of Halloween. Let us introduce you to the beauty of ancient Bucharest, the haunting beauty and mythology of Sighisoara, and spooky Bran Castle (aka Dracula’s castle) in Brasov. For a spine-tingling adventure this Halloween, don’t look past this adventure in Transylvania. Mwahahaha.
