Once in Eger, Ian checks out the city's baroque architecture, and goes grape picking with a local family who encourage him to drink plenty of the fruits of his labour! traveling by bus, Ian continues his journey to Hortobagy National Park situated on the Great Plain, or the Puszta, which covers one third of the country. The Puszta is home to whip cracking Hungarian cowboys, renowned for their horsemanship, and Ian gets to see a display of their impressive skills. Ian Crosses the Hungarian border into Romania by train, and his first stop is Transylvania's medieval town, Sighisoara. This picturesque town was the birthplace of the ruler who became known as Dracula, and Ian investigates the history of his famous tale. Ian travels east to the Romanian capital Bucharest. Here he tours the many reminders of the Ceauscescu era, including a visit to the Grand Palace and the leader's final resting place.
