Stop At: Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), Str. General Traian Mosoiu nr. 24, Bran 507025 Romania

Located at less than 30 km from Brașov, on a cliff, at a strategic point which once was a fortress built by the Teutonic Knights for defending the southeastern border of Transylvania, Bran Castle was built in the 14th century by Transylvanian traders in order to defend themselves against the numerous Ottoman invasions.

Although he never visited Transylvania, Bram Stoker created, relying heavily on his own imagination, a mysterious, dark and fearsome aura of Count Dracula, which led to the myth that once the castle was the house of the Wallachian Prince Vlad the Impaler, painted by the historians of that time as a ruthless and blood thirsty despot.

Duration: 2 hours
