3. Bran Castle 
Between the hours 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 Bran Castle awaits visitors.
By far, the most interesting destination to be visited.
I always wondered what it would be the night to visit the castle where Prince Vlad Tepes lived.
Narrow corridors that allow passage of one person shrouded in candlelight is a perfect scenario for a Dracula movie.


4. Pelisor Castle – Sinaia (last year the public could visit Peles Castle is closed Pelisor).


You can make a parallel between Night of Museums and the Festival of Light 2012.
It is a project that takes place synchronously in 23 cities in Romania, also on Saturday May 19, 2012, between 21:00 – 00:00. The red candle over 160,000 in the same time in all cities.
In Brasov this event will be held in Central Park „Titulescu” Brasov, Saturday – May 19, 2012, intreorele 21.00 – 24.00.


Is not that sound interesting?

I hope to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in this event, to find a way to enjoy both events.
