Dracula facts and myths
By far, Dracula is the most prominent Romanian personality known outside of the country’s boundaries.
Known as being very drastic and cruel, the prince inspired the English writer Bram Stoker (1897) with his novel “Dracula“, where the “vampire” was the main character. The novel inspired the TV series and movie with the same name directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
Although the Bran Castle in the Carpatian Mountains is known as Dracula’s Castle, there is no evidence that the prince ever stayed there. Other 2 castles in the Romanian mountains are also associated with Dracula’s legend: Poenari Castle and Corvin Castle.
