Bran Castle, DRACULA!!

This is NOT Dracula's castle, but it is Marie's summer castle ...She was Queen Victoria's [of England] daughter and also Queen of Romania...The castle is situated on top of a promontory and was a medieval fortress. That is one reason why the Dracula [movie] people decided it was suitable to be Dracula's castle. Dracula was a real person who defended Romania from the Turks who were invading...but his castle sadly is in ruins in Transylvania (same region as Bran Castle).
