I am sure you have heard many legends about Dracula and about Bran castle somewhere in Romania.

I visited Bran castle as part of my November’s adventure in Transylvania, the famous and most visited part of Romania.

My impressions of Bran Castle in Romania

  1. First of all, Bran castle is very romantic, not scary at all 🙂
  2. Many locals sell handmade staff on the way to Bran castle, for example: old ladies sell very comfy handmade socks they knit. They will urge you to buy anything from them
  3. Do not be surprise that people in Bran use horses for transportation
  4. Early November in Bran was very cold. We had only -9 degrees during the day, that’s why dress up properly
  5. Romania has yummy food & prices are cheap, even if you are in a touristy place. Prices in 2011: the soup: 1€; pálinka, the traditional fruit brandy of Romania: 0,5€
  6. Bran has plenty of tourists also during winter. However, this place still has a charm. Enjoy my photos and make your own opinion 🙂
