Bran Castle, historic castle of Transylvania and popular tourist destination, is for sale
Posted by medievalradio on November 16, 2015 in archeology, article
Deep in the hills of Transylvania, not far from the cave of the bats and wolves, sits Bran Castle. For centuries it has sat perched there amid the stereotypical howling of wolves and slithering of bat-snakes. These days it is often called Dracula Castle by tourists even though, as this article points out, the castle’s connection to Dracula has long been recognized as tenuous at best.

Creepy, mysterious and pale skinned nobles who descend from a long line of ghoulish counts still own Bran Castle. After the end of communism in Romania they got to take the property back. For the last year or two they have been trying to sell it to the Romanian government for 80 million dollars!

Apparently the Romanian government is not buying it, and nobody else is either. Even though it is a very popular place with the vampire hunters and tourists from far and wide. Could it be that the castle is haunted by ghouls? We at CEU Medieval Radio believe it to be, indeed, haunted by ghouls.
