Busteni (pronounced Bushteni) is a picturesque place to stop en route to Transylvania in Romania.

From Bucharest, we moved and stayed in Sinaia, then stayed an afternoon in Busteni before moving on towards Dracula’s castle in Bran – which is the highlight of the trip for me.

Busteni is a nice teaser to Dracula’s castle, because in this town there are houses that are worthy the Addam’s family. Spooky-looking, I was so mesmerized!
