Day 2: Walachia and its secrets

 Good morning Dracula’s country! We will start the day with a little bit of mystery regarding his death. The historians yet, they couldn’t tell exactly where he is buried. One clue took the road of Comana Monastery which was built by Vlad Tepes. After lunch we will cross the Wallachia region on our way to the former capital, during Dracula’s reign, Targoviste. Here you will see one of the best preserved royal courts in Romania. Let’s go and discover more!
