The region of Transylvania is well known for the beauty of the Carpathian landscape and its rich history. This is the region where Dracula was the main character, where he leaded and supervised the way things are going. Everyone knows about the legend of Dracula, about the vampires and the unbelievable actions that scared the locals and the people around the world.

We are heading to our first destination, Sighisoara the city where Vlad Tepes known as Dracula was born. The house is located in the Citadel Square. Not far from here we will find the Clock Tower that houses the History Museum of Sighisoara, with an interesting balcony which was the most important observation point of the city.

Our next stop is Brasov, surrounded by the Southern Carpathians where we will be amazed by the beautiful Black Church, built by the Saxon community, being the largest and one of the most important gothic structure in the region, and the Council Square which was the place for annual markets since 1364.The houses surrounding the square are whispering stories about history and lead you back in time.

Not far from the gorgeous city of Brasov is located Rasnov Fortress, a beautiful and unique citadel which was used as a defense system for the Transylvanian villages. It has a simple architectural style similar to the ordinary houses and improved with the fortification style of the time.

The Dracula adventure is not over, the next stop is at the main attraction of the Dracula story. The Bran Castle known as the Dracula Castle as well, located in Rucar-Bran pass, not far from Brasov. In the Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula”, the castle is an important part, it’s the place where the vampire lived. The castle has a protective effect but also a commercial one. The construction is made of wood and stone. Today we can see here a large collections of ceramics, furniture, weapons and armor.

The name Dracula was known as the sobriquet of a ruler of Wallachia, Vlad III. Dracula is the Slavonic genitive form of Dracul. In Romanian, dracul means “the devil”, which made Vlad’s reputation even worst.

Our last destination is another breathtaking castle named Peles located in Sinaia which is a gorgeous construction started in 1873 and finished in 1914 by Carol I, and used as a summer royal residence. It has a Neo-Renaissance architectural style and was the first European castle lit by electrical current which was produced by the castle’s own system.

Like all Americans I was always intrigued by the legend of Dracula. In my journey I have discovered lots of myths and legends about the Count Dracula, but also the historical truth…Romania should be proud to have had such a great military leader.
