After arriving in Brasov we took a trip to Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula's Castle (although it is one among several locations linked to the Dracula legend). The castle is now a museum displaying art and furniture collected by Queen Marie. I came well prepared for a chance encounter with the Count himself: spiked bracelet, claw ring and red tassel necklace. not that the necklace would be of any help, I just thought the color would be vampire appropriate. I am joking of course, you kids should not believe such legends as there is no evidence that Stoker knew anything about this castle. More pictures of Brasov, Bran and Peles castles will follow in a future post.
