About Romania / Country Information / Dracula


"Vlad the Impaler" is said to have killed anything between 40,000 to 100,000 European civilians mainly by using his favourite method of impaling them on a sharp pole.
Dracula was a fictional character created by the author Bram Stoker in his 1897 horror novel “Dracula”. The novel is set primarily in and around Transylvania. It is said that Dracula was inspired by the 15th century Transylvanian-born Vlad Dracul. During his main reign (1456–1462) "Vlad the Impaler" is said to have killed anything between 40,000 to 100,000 European civilians mainly by using his favourite method of impaling them on a sharp pole. Transylvania still pushes the Dracula link, as the tourism bosses seek to get their teeth into the European market. Bran Castle, close to the city of Brașov, is always advertised as "Dracula's Castle", though Vlad the Impaler, stayed here only for a few nights.
