Bran is situated in the South east point of Transylvania. There the land is starting to rise. The road from Brasov to Cimpulung lies in a valley between the Piatra Craiului and the Muntii Bucegi. Both has tops above 2000m. There are a lot of woods in the area as well as small little villages, which seem to be in the Medieval period. You can take good long walks around here. A little outside Bran is a small church, which is very beautiful. If you ask you are able to visit it.
