Dâmbovicioara Cave

Day tour to

Bran Castle – Bear Sanctuary – Dâmbovicioara Cave 

 

    Near the Natural Reservation of Piatra Craiului Mountains, in Zărnești Town, Libearty Bear Sanctuary shelters around 100 brown bear specimens, on a 69 hectares piece of oak forest. This makes Libearty Bear Sanctuary the biggest brown bear reservation in the world. The bears are rescued from cruel and improper conditions from zoos, circuses or are wild specimens which have endeavoured to close to human settlements.   

 


  To visit Dâmbovicioara Cave, we leave the main road for a small incursione into the narrow and winding mountain roads passing through the village of Sirnea. The oldest known description of the caves was made by Joanne Fridvaldszky, a Jesuit scholar who lived in Cluj, he writes a book in 1767 titled „Minero-Logia Magni Principatus Transilvaniae”. 

Around 1955, a group of speleologists from Brasov cleared the entrance into the cave. During these excavation they found bones of Ursus spelaeus, an extinct species of cave bear that lived in Europe and Asia around 26.000 B.C.


  Bran Castle is our last stop for the day. Built as a customs point on the most traveled merchant road linking Trasnylvania to Vallachia, Bran Castle stands on a 60 m high cliff overlooking a narrow mountain crossing. It was buit between 1378 – 1382 in a gothic architectural style. Due to it’s placement and similarities to the description in Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, Bran Castle becomes the legendary Castle of count Dracula. The name of the famous vampire, Dracula,  is associated to the historical figure of  Vlad the Impaler the bloody despot of 15th century Vallachia, who is surrounded by many other legends and stories.
