Haunted by Dracula - the Bran Castle
Haunted by Dracula - the Bran Castle
Sun, 5 Dec 1:00 PM - Romania
The citizens of nearby Brasov are the builders of the medieval Bran Castle (1377), which should have protected them against attacks coming from the border towards Walachia. Even today it looks like a real fortress, placed at the narrowest spot between two mountains. During the centuries Bran Castle was used by Hungarian kings, princes of Transylvania and even of Walachia, like Vlad the Impaler, known also as Dracula. Finally, its owners, the citizens of Brasov, made it a present to the royal family of Romania, who restored the castle and used it as a summer residence. In the comunist era, Bran Castle was taken by the state and became a museum, focussed on the Dracula legend. Nowadays, still a museum, it has been restored to its lawful owners. History and legend are interwoven in the Bran Castle, sometimes in very subtle ways.
