Visit Bran Castle in 2024

While Bram Stoker's iconic character, Count Dracula, is purely fictional, the association of Bran Castle with the legendary vampire has made it a magnet for enthusiasts worldwide. Originally erected in 1377 as a fortress to defend against invading Turks, the castle played a pivotal role in protecting the region and controlling the mountain pass.
The castle's rooms and corridors wind through history. Its rich collection includes furniture, art, and artifacts from the 14th to the 19th centuries, painting a vivid picture of Romania's royal past. Queen Marie, a beloved figure in Romania, is particularly associated with the castle. Her heart was kept at Bran Castle in a golden casket until 2013.
But beyond its historical significance, the castle thrives in legend. While the real Vlad the Impaler (often associated as the inspiration behind Dracula) might not have lived in the castle, his notorious reputation and the eerie atmosphere of the castle make it easy for visitors to imagine tales of the supernatural.
Bran Castle is more than just a tourist spot; it's a fusion of factual history and folklore, making it a captivating destination for travelers from all walks of life.
