Visiting Dracula

I’ll post some more photos from England later on as well, but for now I’d like to show some pictures taken during my latest trip last week, when I was in Romania.

This photo was taken last Sunday in the town of Bran, which is home to Bran Castle (Castelul Bran). The castle is often called Dracula’s Castle, even though there is no clear link either to the fictional character of Dracula from Bram Stoker’s novel or to the historical figure Vlad the Impaler, who lived in the 15th century and is said to have been the inspiration for the literary character.

The castle was built near the historical border of Transylvania and Wallachia and was probably completed in the first half of the 15th century. In 1920 it was donated to the Romanian royal family and the museum inside the castle is mostly dedicated to Queen Marie (1875-1938).
