About

You must have heard of Dracula! We are eternal grateful to Bram Stoker that he had the inspiration to create a character that became so popular. We can say that many of those who visit our country do that because of him and Bran Castle (Transylvania), also named Dracula’s Castle.

Bucharest’s fortress was built in fourteenth century for Mircea Cel Bătrân (Mircea the Old) and raised at rank of royal residence by Vlad Țepeș (also known as Vlad the Empaler) in the fifteenth century. Constantin Brâncoveanu, another representative ruler had instaured his throne and began to extend this court at the end of seventeenth century.

Today prevails the ruins of the old court, but it surely deserves a visit. It is a place with a huge historical significance. Vlad’s trunk will welcome you at the entrance!
