Travel Tips for Bran

The Bran Castle

by Nobbe

Vlad Tepes used Bran Castle as headquarters for his incursions into Transylvania.

VLAD TEPES - The Impaler (DRACULA) Prince of Wallachia 1448,1456-1462,1476
Son of Vlad Dracul (Knight of the Order of the Dragon-1431) and Grandson of Mircea the Great, King of Wallachia (1386-1418).

Entrance Tower

by Nobbe

Dracula or Vlad the Impaler was the son of Vlad Dracul. Vlad Dracul was dubbed a knight of the Dragon Order by the Hungarian king. All the members of the order had a dragon on their coat of arms, and that is what brought him the nickname of Dracul (the Devil). Vlad the Impaler used to sign himself Draculea or Draculya - the Devil's son -, a name which was distorted into Dracula.

Horrified by these atrocities, the Saxons printed books and pamphlets in which they told about Vlad's cruelty. These booklets also reached Germany and Western Europe, where Dracula became known as a bloody tyrant.
In 1897, the Irish writer Bram Stoker published Dracula, which made Vlad the Impaler famous world-wide. Stoker read the stories about Dracula printed in the 15th and 16th centuries and was struck by his acts of cruelty. He decided to make him his character; he also read several books about Transylvania (a name of Latin origin, meaning "the country beyond the forests"), and thought that this "exotic" land would make a proper setting for Dracula's deeds.

View from the Castle

by Nobbe

Various methods have been used to protect against vampires. Driving a stake of ash or aspen wood through the heart during the daylight hours will kill one. Until 1823, when it was made illegal, it was common practice in England to drive a stake through the heart of suicides. In Romania, red-hot bars were often used. The vampire's body whould then be burned or reburied at a crossroads.

Winter days

by Vanity666

A waterproof backpack because there is a lot of snow during winter days. Warm clothes and waterproof shoes with good soles because it can be really slippery, and a good hat so your ears don't drop off because of cold.
