The Castle and stronghold of Bran owes, mainly, its fame to the legendary Count Dracula, whose real existance was associated to the actual Prince Vlad Tepes (i.e., Vlad the Impaler). In spite of of the lack of documentary attestation of his actually dwelling in the Castle, many lovers of legends and of “kicks” go there, maybe for experiencing the thrill of fancied meeting with the terrible hero.
