Count Dracula's Transylvania

Go Beyond’s Gothic Folklore Experience

4th – 11th May 2022

What's to get excited about!

If you are a fan of Gothic films or literature, like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, then this tour, of the famous Count’s homelands, Transylvania, is your dream holiday. The plains, rivers and mountains of Transylvania are vividly brought to life in Bram Stokers creepy novel, and we are inviting you to spend time with us to see for yourself and to experience Transylvania’s dark beauty.

Our tour will include a visit to Bran’s Castle near Brasov, where legend says Count Dracula lived and terrorised the nearby villages. We shall also have the chance to explore the Carpathian landscape, depicted in Stoker’s book, with visits to the Piatra Craiului National Park, Zarnesti Gorges, the stunning village of Fundata perched high in the mountains with panoramic views, a tour of the main town of Transylvania, Brasov, and a trip to Peles Castle near Sinaia.

This will be an amazing opportunity for those wishing to see first-hand the Transylvania that has become the home of many spooky tales.
