Day 1: Bucharest city tour

Stop At: Old Town, Bucharest Romania
If you arrive in Romania for the first time, the first city to greet you is Bucharest. The atmosphere will be quite similar to many other capitals: new buildings, historical monuments and the hustle-bustle of a restless city. It’s here that your journey to another world starts, one populated by vampires, mythical creatures and weird phenomena that failed to get an explanation on the Discovery channel.

Only a few kilometers away from Bucharest we’ll reach a charming islet in the middle of a lake, with a small chapel inhabited by only one monk. The former church is now in the depths, covered by waters, and people say that on stormy days its sunken bell can be heard tolling.

The evening is devoted to the old historical center; the narrow streets nowadays filled with stylish bistros and cafés used...
