One of the most imposing historical monuments of Romania is the Bran Castle, located about 30 kilometers from the city of Brasov, the first capital of the Romanian Country, where the Piatra Craiului Mountains meet with the Bucegi massif.
Built on a rock, the Castle is now home to the Bran Museum, a museum divided in four floors. And although foreign tourists come to look for the legend of Count Dracula, Bran Castle’s history fascinates them as well. The main reason why foreign tourists choose to visit Bran Castle is the legend that has been created around it. Thus, the most representative legend of Transylvania, that of Dracula or Vlad Tepes, is indisputably linked to Bran Castle.
Currently, Bran Castle is the property of Princess Ileana’s successor, Dominic of Habsburg.
