* Corvinesti Castle * Defensive 95 206


The most important monument of Gothic lay architecture in Transylvania (14th c.), is to be found at Hunedoara. Built on the place of a former Roman camp, it served as a defence stronghold, as well as a princely residence. It is also said that Vlad the Impaler was incarcerated in a small cell located in the Knights’ Hall and that the time he spend locked inside the Corvinesti Castle (7 years) and the experiences he underwent as a prisoner here contributed to him losing his minds. This story is actually used to further develop the Myth of Count Dracula, emphasizing that the horrible fate he had while imprisoned led to the development of his sadistic methods of torturing people.








EPIC: * Bran Castle * Offensive262 131

Bran Castle, situated near Bran and in the immediate vicinity of Braşov, is a national monument and landmark in Romania. The fortress is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia, on DN73. Commonly known as "Dracula's Castle" (although it is one among several locations linked to the Dracula legend, including Poenari Castle and Hunyad Castle), it is marketed as the home of the titular character in Bram Stoker's Dracula.
