Dracula's Castle

recommendation by else87

So, there is no evidence to suggest that Vlad Tepes (aka Dracula) ever did any more than pass through Bran, the castle here is still impressive, and worth a visit for the sight alone. It is also the castle in which Bram Stoker set some of his novel 'Dracula', thus the tourist appeal. There is certainly a strong sense of the Gothic, especially if you travel through the Carpathians from Bucharest to get to it. One of Romania's more imposing landmarks.
