Bucharest
The booming city of Bucharest is a sophisticated metropolis with a high contrast of old- and new-world architecture.
Get some historical perspective at Patriarchal Cathedral and Biserica Sfantul Anton - Curtea Veche. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at AFI Cotroceni and Carturesti Carusel. Next up on the itinerary: browse the different shops at Baneasa Shopping City, contemplate the long history of Stavropoleos Monastery, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and stroll around Herăstrău Park.

For ratings, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Bucharest visit planner.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Bucharest is an approximately 8-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Dubai to Bucharest due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Dubai in July, expect Bucharest to be colder, temps between 36°C and 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to take a train to Brasov.

With the dramatic Carpathian Mountains as backdrop, Brasov is the largest city in a region of mountain resorts.
Fagaras Fortress and Pelisor Castle will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Libearty Bear Sanctuary Zarnesti and Luado Chocolate. Explore Brasov's surroundings by going to Dino Parc (in Rasnov), Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle) (in Bran) and Sinaia (Peles Castle & Sinaia Monastery). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Peasant Fortified Church at Prejmer, get in on the family fun at Parc Aventura Brasov, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Tampa, and browse the different shops at Coresi Shopping Mall.

Plan my Brasov trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Bucharest to Brasov by train takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a bus. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) to allow time to take a bus to Sibiu.
