Bran Castle

Bran Castle is located 17 km from Vulcan and it is one of the most imposing historical monuments in Romania. The castle is located in Bran-Rucar Pass, between Bucegi Mountains and Piatra Craiului. It is a tourist attraction that brings here hundreds of thousands of tourists due to a legend: Count Dracula’s Legend, although the historical sources say that Vlad the Impaler was here only one time.

Built on a rock, the castle now houses the Bran museum, a museum that spans on four floors. And although foreign tourists come annually in search of Count Dracula’s legend, and the guide emphasizes its mythical side, Bran Castle’s history is also fascinating. The first documentary attestation of Bran Castle is represented by an act issued on 19 November 1377 by the King of Hungary. By this document, the Braşovians were given the privilege to build a stone fortress at Bran.

The fortress and the historical remains of Râșnov

Rasnov Fortress is located 13 km from Vulcan, on the old-fashioned road Brasov-Rucar-Campulung Muscel, linking Transylvania to Wallachia. It is built on the hill that rises to the south of the center of Rasnov settlement through the collective effort of the inhabitants of this settlement, helped by the neighboring villages, Cristian and Vulcan, and it was called “Taraneasca Fortress” because the main occupation of its inhabitants was agriculture. Visitors can find here a museum, a medieval tavern and souvenir statues.

Dâmbovicioarei Gorge and Cave

Located on the Rucar – Bran avenue, in the Dambovicioara village, the Dambovicioarei Gorge, with a length of only 3 km, the verticality of the rock walls and the narrow passage made by the small Dambovicioara creek are impressive. At its end of the road, there are the village and the cave of Dambovicioara.

The Dambovicioarei cave, located in the karst area of the Rucar – Bran avenue, it was formed in the Jurassic time of the Piatra Craiului mountain, due to the action of the waters of Dambovicioarei river.
