Castles of Transylvania

Transylvania is famous for its castles and fortresses: from the austere, legendary Bran Castle to the Gothic castle of John Hunyadi, the great army commander of the Middle Ages. On our ways to or back from Transylvania, we visit the marvelous Peles Castle built at the end of 19th century.
