Bran Castle


Bran Castle often refered to as "Dracula's Castle", originally built as a fortress for the Knights of the Teutonic in 1212. It was later re-built in 13 C by the Saxons to protect the city of Brosov. Some versions refer to Bran Castle as the base for Vlad Tepes; although this point is heatedly debated among Dracula fans.

Bran Castle situated near and in the immediate vicinity of Braşov, is a national monument and landmark in Romania. The fortress is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia, on DN73.

The castle is now a museum open to tourists, displaying art and furniture collected by Queen Marie. Tourists can see the interior individually or by a guided tour. At the bottom of the hill is a small open air museum park exhibiting traditional Romanian peasant structures (cottages, barns, etc.) from across the country.
