What’s the legend of Dracula?
Vlad Dracul, also known as “Vlad the Impaler” was pictured by Bram Stoker in his novel “Dracula” in 1897. Thanks to this, more an more tourists have become interested in visiting the castle and taking the Bran Castle Tour. Dracula is a literal translation in Gaelic as Drac Ullah, which means “Bad Blood”. The truth is that, actually, Vlad the Impaler was born in Sighisoara, and has only visited the Bran Castle once or maybe twice in his lifetime. Many believe that he was the main inspiration for the character of Dracula, because he used to impale his enemies on wooden poles. What you’ll never hear is the actual truth. In the 15th century, impaling your enemies was a very common thing to do by the rulers of the regions.
