Thursday, July 11. Brasov

On Thursday, we left Bucharest for two nights in Brasov. Our route took us through the Carpathian Mountains. These are good-sized mountains. We stopped at the Peles Castle, residence of the last Romanian monarch. This may be one of the most beautiful castles I've seen.

Here is a picture of the interior courtyard.

The interior is incredible. Unfortunately we were not permitted to take any pictures inside. The decoration, woodwork, paintings and furniture were remarkable. You will have to come and see for yourself.

We continued on to Brasov. This is a mid-sized Germanic city. Our guide lead us on a walking tour of Brasov. (The first two pictures were taken on Friday).
