Dracula’s Castle In Transylvania
Bran Castle, in Romania a huge medieval-style fortress located in the Transylvanian Alps. This architectural work is commonly identified as “Dracula’s Castle” since the novelist Bram Stoker was inspired by this medieval fortress, to write the descriptions of Count Dracula’s dwelling, in the classic gothic horror novel. This castle has become one of the main tourist attractions in the region, although specialists say that the Prince of Wallachia Vlad III Draculea (the Impaler), a historical figure who led to the fictional Dracula, never lived under its roof.
Although the writer Bram Stoker never set foot inside this palace, he was able to get to know it through English libraries which provided all the maps and reference books he needed, from this point onwards his ghoulish imagination did the rest and added some magic into the castle.

The first transfers were made between 1785 – 1787 and later the area was consecrated as the “Municipal Ossuary of Paris”. From 1809, the catacombs were opened to the public by appointment.
