Dracula’s Castle, Bran, Romania

Who did not hear about Dracula’s Castle?

But you have to see it and to know the real history.

Bran is situated 30 km south from Brasov, but it is easy to come also from Bucharest (around 175 km). The destination and the route from Bucharest is very crowdy, so I would recommend to visit the castle during the week and NOT on week-ends, if you can.
