The castle became a favorite place for Queen Maria, who put her mark on the interior’s renovation, and it was later seized by communists in 1948 along with royals’ expulsion from Romania. For Bran Castle, being most associated with the myth of Dracula’s Castle - linked to the Bram Stoker’s novel, made it famous all over the world.

    We had an amazing day with Dan who was extremely knowledgeable and so nice! While the whole day was lovely one of our favorite parts was him showing us local Transylvanian street food by Bram’s castle.
