Bran Castle, Romania

Commonly known as “Dracula’s Castle” (although it is one among several locations linked to the Dracula legend, including Poenari Castle and Hunyad Castle), it is often erroneously referred to as the home of the title character in Bram Stoker‘s Dracula.

There is, however, no evidence that Stoker knew anything about this castle, which has only tangential associations with Vlad the Impaler. …

The castle is now a museum dedicated to displaying art and furniture collected by Queen Maria. …

We didn’t enjoy this castle as much as nearby Râșnov Citadel, but it was still worth visiting.
