Vlad the Impaler or Dracula?

A travel blog entry by liliflynn


... Around the corner was Pelisor Castle, which in reality was more of a luxurious manor, that featured as the summer residence for the Prince. Doing a self-tour of the interior was quite confusing, the the decorating style constantly swapped between classical late-medieval style and a tacky 1960's theme. Having overstayed at the various castles, we rushed to Brasov to stay in our first AirBnB accommodation. This turned out to ...

Tracking Bears With the Transylvanian Wolf

Brasov, Transylvania - where did Dracula go?

A travel blog entry by mark_christina

But amongst all of this very rich information, there was only a scattering on Dracula, the author Bram Stoker and the infamous Vlad the Impaler (who in his short reign seemed to impale an awful lot of 'bad' people, making him hated across Europe)... Interesting castle, but our quest for Dracula wasn't becoming any clearer and I am so glad that we decided to also visit another ...
