Day 5. Cheile Dambovicioarei (800m) – Fundata – Brasov – Bucharest (200 km).

We start the day driving through steep and narrow limestone walls of Dambovicioara Gorge, and then the large meandered road goes to Rucar – Bran Pass giving us the opportunity to admire on a side the Ridge of Piatra Craiului Mountains we just traveled through, then the massive block of Bucegi Mountains on the other side.

The rest of today is allocated to visit other important medieval sights from the region:

- Rasnov Fortress built about 800 years ago on a rocky hilltop, elevated at 150m above in the small town with the same name. The fortress is placed near the Bran Pass, a trade route connecting Wallachia with Transylvania. It is one of the biggest rural fortresses in the country and somehow unique in that it was meant to be a place of refuge for the commoners from sieges over extended periods of time. As such it had at least 30 houses, a school, a chapel, and other buildings more commonly associated with a village.
The inner rooms are looking more like a maze, with several wood ladders linking them and a few so-called secret passages which should keep you busy for quite a while.
Finally, the bonus: the view over the mountains, green fields and little brown dots - houses from the small surrounding villages is magnificent!

- Brasov, the Saxon’s Kronstadt (Town of the Crown), the jewel of the German minority attracts with the largely Baroque area coiled beneath Mount Tampa and Mount Postavaru – old city. Visits to the Black Church – the biggest Gothic church from Southeast Europe houses a priceless collection of Oriental rugs as well as a 4000-pipe organ.,  the Council Square, the Franciscan Monastery, the Central Park, the Black and White Towers,  Ecaterina’s Gate, Schei Gate and the Rope Street (the narrowest street in Europe).

Arriving to Bucharest in the evening.
