Dracula The Untold Story

Location description

Bran

  There are many stories to tell about Dracula. Many more about Vlad the Impaler. Explore Transylvania will make sure you learn all of them. The forested valleys at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains hide a secret village: Bran. Tiny, but mighty, Bran used to be the border point between the historical regions of Wallachia and Transylvania long ago; today, it is shrouded in mystery and folk tales with vampires and witches. Playing into the fantasy, Bran Castle itself watches over from its lone cliff. If you do dare to come close, however, you will discover a whole different story. The residence of the Royal Family in the ‘20s, Bran is not all stone and desolation. The rich furniture, elegance, and warmth transformed this castle into a home. Count Dracula, a fictional character in the Dracula novel, was inspired by one of the best-known figures of Romanian history, Vlad Dracula, nicknamed Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), who was the ruler of Walachia at various times from 1456-1462. Born in 1431 in Sighisoara, he resided all his adult life in Walachia, except for periods of imprisonment at Pest and Visegrad (in Hungary). Although he never traveled to Romania, Stoker crammed his book with descriptions of many real locations that can still be visited in present-day Romania. They include the most important historical places associated with Vlad Tepes, such as the 14th century town of Sighisoara where you can visit the house in which Vlad was born (now hosting a restaurant and a small museum of medieval weapons).

Throughout the unexpected re-planning of our itinerary, Marius and the team were incredibly helpful in trying to source appropriate solutions for us and very accommodating to our final request for an more...extra night skiing. We had a smooth arrival into Romania, Marius was waiting for us and transported us straight to our Bucharest hotel. Overall he could not have been more helpful. He booked restaurants for us, gave great suggestions and, since we ended up being the only travellers on the departure date, allowed us to be flexible with what time we wanted to leave on a morning which really helped us relax.
