Credits to @LauraMatthews for the original card and inspiration! Located in Bran, Romania, "it is marketed as the home of the titular character in Bram Stoker's Dracula. There is, however, no evidence that Stoker knew anything about this castle, which has only tangential associations with Vlad III", the inspiration for the creation of Dracula. But it is OLD - a wooden fortress was first built in 1212 and a stone citadel was built in 1377, and has a wealth of history. It was the home to the Romanian royal family in 1920 until its seizure by the Communist regime in 1948. Today it is a museum open to tourists.
@alise but if you ask me why Dracula suddenly decided to move to England from Romania, I have no idea...
@alise so...in the novel, Dracula buys an estate in England and claims as victim a girl named Lucy. Dr. John Seward, who was Van Helsing's student, called the man for help when he couldn't figure out what was wrong with Lucy. Van Helsing correctly diagnoses the illness as a vampire bite, and the story goes on... :)
