hello.
In August I booked an apartment in a small mountain town Busteni in Romania. Price was great.
I read about this town that is visited frequently by bears during night time and that is located only 45 km away from Castle Dracula.
can you help me with advice?

Would it be Brașov, perhaps? There are tales of bears from the surrounding woods roaming into the city in search of food. There’s a video here: youtube.com/watch?v=Q6oBfFLNPVQ

It’s possible to go on bear (and wolf) tracking tours in the Zărnești region. One of our Romania experts recommends this company: transylvanianwolf.ro/wp/day-walks-tours

Zărnești also has a bear sanctuary (ampbears.ro/en/bear-sanctuary) that you could consider visiting.
