In February 2020 we decided to travel Romania on a mission to find Dracula's Castle, the castle of Vlad the Impaler in their latest travel adventure video!
Finding Dracula's Castle in Romania was not quite as easy as it sounds. Greg thought of Dracula as a blood sucking fiend, the character from Bram Stokers famous novel. Felicity however pictured a Wallachian ruler, Vlad Tepes - aka Vlad The Impaler- famous for impaling his enemies on spikes. Equally fiendish perhaps, certainly both aptly named.
Our Romania travel takes us across Romania from Bran Castle to Snagov Monastery via Vlad thr Impaler’s birthplace in Sighisoara, Targoviste, Corvin Castle and Poenari Fortress (and beyond as they get a little sidetracked) and we invite you to watch that adventure in Romania now!
If you enjoy it, please ‘like’, leave a comment (questions, destinations, suggestions all welcome!), and most importantly, please ‘subscribe’ to their channel to see more of their adventures from around the world.
With thanks to Bran Castle and Corvin Castle for special filming permissions.
