Dracula and his castle, imposing and formidable, are awaiting your arrival. Step back into a tale of gut-wrenching fear and travel paths of yesteryear, and see if you escape the paranoia that has come down from generation to generation. See if you can hear the walls talk, and the wind whisper of horrors that have taken place…or may again for those whose it’s their fate.
Throughout history, nearly every culture in the world has their own tales of undead creatures. Yet despite all, the one tale that reigns supreme is Count Dracula due to Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel.
Count Dracula’s castle is perched high above a valley in the Principality of Transylvania with a formidable river flowing below. The authentic castle, Bran Castle, located in Romania is as full of magic and intrigue as its fabled past owner.
