Romania: Sights to See
While the bulk of our time in Romania will be spent at the orphanage, we will take an overnight trip to do a little sight-seeing in Transylvania. Featured stops include Bran Castle & King Carol's Palace. Bran Castle is more commonly known as Dracula's Castle, although other locations have also been linked to the legend. From what I have read, we should be able to see art and furniture collected by Queen Marie, as well as a small museum exhibiting traditional Romanian peasant structures. The second main stop is King Carol's Palace featuring the time when Romania triumphed over the Ottoman Empire. Can't wait to send photos from when we're actually there!
