Dracula’s Retreat “It’s probably unlike anything that most people have done before”

Here’s Richard’s experience on Dracula’s Retreat 2017. We are pleased our guests had a relaxing, run and nurturing weekend in the Transylvanian village of Bran, only 10 min walk from Bran Castle or Dracula’s Castle.

Dracula’s Retreat is a long weekend (5 days) trip to Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania. The retreat is organized every year and there are multiple weekends throughout the summer.

On Dracula’s Retreat you get fit, go wild and, most importantly, get back to nature. You meditate, train outdoors through natural movement fitness, we go hiking and, of course, we visit Bran Castle and other touristic attractions in the nearby areas.

You are served traditional Transylvanian dishes which, traditionally, consists of all the food groups. However, we also have options for vegetarians and vegans. We have a great number of vegetarian and vegan dishes as our hosts welcome guests from around the world who request different diets.

It is important to check with the organisers if you have dietary requirements. You can do so on Dracula’s Retreat website.

Dracula’s Retreat is, without a doubt, the place you want to be next summer. We believe you’ll agree with us. Don’t miss out, you’ll be glad you did this: www.draculasretreat.com
