Here are also a few details about Bran Castle, whose association with the bloodthirsty legendary vampire is… purely coincidental (not that Dracula were the real likeness of the Wallachian Prince Vlad Tepes either). The castle was built in 1377 by the Saxon settlers. The castle served defensive purposes for centuries before becoming property of the Romanian Royal Family of Hohenzollern. Today, it is owned by one of their descendants and open to the public.
