Transylvania's sits are considered to have one of Earth's strongest magnetic fields and some say that many of its people have extra-sensorial perception. Many people believe that vampires had existed in Transylvania. Tales of the supernatural had been circulating in Romanian folklore for centuries. This had inspired the Irish writer Bram Stoker to write his famous novel about Count Dracula.
Count Dracula, a fictional character in the novel "Dracula", was inspired by one of the best-known figures of the Romanian history, Vlad Țepes (Vlad the Impaler), nicknamed, Vlad Dracul, who was the ruler of Walachia at various times from 1456-1462.
He was born in 1431 in Sighișoara and he resided all his adult life in Walachia, except for periods of imprisonment in Pest and Visegrad (in Hungary).
In Romania you can find important historical sites associated with Vlad Țepes (Dracula), such as the 14th century town of Sighisoara where you can visit the house in which the count was born (now hosting a restaurant and a small museum of medieval weapons).
Other Dracula sites include:
Old Princely Court (Palatul Curtea Veche) in Bucharest;
Snagov Monastery, where, according to legend, Vlad's remains were buried;
The ruins of the Poenari Fortress (considered being the authentic Dracula's Castle);
The village of Arefu where Dracula legends are still told;
The city of Brasov where Vlad led raids against the Saxons merchants;
And the well-known Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle).
