... br> I was shocked today to learn that the idea of Count Dracula I had held since I was a young child was completely wrong - who knew that Count Dracula wasn't a cute and cuddly Muppet that taught millions of children how to count?

The first view of the castle is stunning, and it only gets better the closer we get. We take great exterior photos of the genuine fairytale castle. We have to buy one adult and one senior ticket, 20+10 lei, but don’t bother with a ticket for photographing inside as ...
