Dracula’s Castle

Dracula’s Castle, also known as Bran Castle as it is located in a small town called Bran, near to Brasow, is a must-see. In fact, it is undoubtedly Romania’s most visited tourist attraction.

The Knights of the Teutonic Order built this castle in the 13th Century. It was used by the Saxons to protect Brasov from invaders.

The castle is home to some antique eastern and central European furniture that was used by Queen Marie who lived her for a large part of her life. The stories related to Vlad Tepes (Dracula) are mere stories and myths and the castle holds no historical evidence of these stories.

The look of the castle resembles more the castles portrayed in fairy tales rather than the ones in horror stories. The castle has typical tall pointed towers and was home to the Romanian Royal Family until very recent times.

The castle has a very attractive and historic appeal to it as it is amongst the oldest structures in Romania.
