Charlie and some of the locals found it hilarious that every time someone got on they would ask the one person who did not speak any Romainian (bar …

We got the local bus to Bran Castle. Again not really sure where we were, we eventually turned a corner in what I thought was a random Romani village and there it was, casting a shadow over the village the imposing Bran Castle stood on the rock face surrounded by mountains and forest.

Once off the bus and looking at it you could almost …

Vlad the Impaler or Dracula?

A travel blog entry by liliflynn

After escaping Dan's house before we burst from excess food consumption, our first stop is the infamous "Dracula" castle (aka Bran Castle).

Anyway, Vlad only appeared to ...

Including, a girl dressing up in traditional garments as a bride, dancing and singing.

... tourist map so used Bryan's notes from Mr Google (and a map in a bus shelter further on) to get to our hotel. Only 10 minutes from the station.

It was about 11 am by now. The man at the hotel (probably the owner) spoke very good English. We asked about getting to Bran to see Bran Castle (aka Dracula's Castle). He said a taxi wasn't much more than a bus to get to the main bus station for Bran. He called a cab for us about 11.30 and it was 6 lei ...

    Superb Hotel. Small only a handful of rooms but even going into it feels five star with a grand looking entrance. All the staff were lovely, the rooms were rustic and spectacular, bathrooms flawless and near all the main attractions. Would spend the money to stay here without a doubt.
