The dream of millions and only a couple get the chance to celebrate it at the most popular Halloween spot in the world: Transylvania!
I personally think that it is very overrated and not worth visiting Transylvania only because of Halloween. But I was told that the main Halloween parties were on the weekend as Halloween 2011 was a Monday.
If you only want to visit Transylvania over Halloween because of Dracula, stay at home because you will be very disappointed if you don’t book one of the very expensive tour packages which last for 3-5 days. If you would like to see the beautiful country of Transylvania I definitely recommend you visiting it in autumn. The country looks beautiful and mysterious with the yellow and orange colored trees and leaves on the ground. The low sun gives everything a beautiful color while the temperatures are still over 10 degrees, which makes it even more enjoyable.
Make sure you inform yourself ahead of time of what there is to do during Halloween and when the parties are. They told me that most parties are always on the weekends before.
A great hostel to stay at is Kismet Dao, about 10 minutes walk from the city center of Brasov with great service.
