I thought it was interesting to note that Vlad (III) Tepes, known as Vlad the Impaler and whom the character Dracula is said to be based upon, had not lived in the castle. Despite this, the castle is known as Dracula's castle. At the base of the castle, many vendors are selling souvenirs of Dracula based paraphernalia.

What castle is complete without its own armory? The torture tools add a homey touch.
This was a relaxed, go as you please, tour and was inexpensive. The tour cost let you take as many photos, without restrictions, as you wanted which was nice considering we'd been to another castle who made you pay additional if you wanted the liberty to take pictures.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour into Romanian culture. Have a good weekend.
