Private Trip To The Tomb of Dracula, Vlad The Impaler

We Romanians are often amused that a work of fiction made The Tomb of Dracula/Vlad Tepes (the Impaler) and Bran Castle two of the most visited tourist attractions in Romania. To this day, the myth lives on to fascinate any tourist taking a trip to Romania, even those who are not particularly fascinated by vampires… Everyone knows the legend of Dracula, which has travelled the world through its many portrayals in literature and cinema.  Imagine how many likes a picture of you in front of Dracula’s tomb would get. We guarantee it will make all your friends, if not jealous, at least terribly curious. Taking this trip will not only leave you with beautiful memories from Romania, it will also give you the satisfaction of having uncovered the mysteries of Dracula.  As you probably already know, Dracula is nothing more than a fictional character created by Irish author Bram Stoker in the novel of the same name. Even though most of the action does take place in 19th century Transylvania (the region where Prince Charles has acquired several properties), that is the only connection between Dracula and Romanian ruler Vlad the Impaler, who inspired Stoker’s story.  Vlad Tepes got his vampire reputation due to the cruel method through which he punished traitors, thieves and enemies – impalement.  Not much is known about the death of Dracula/ Vlad Tepes, but...
