I have 2 problems with this
1) the price
2) It's just not creepy enough.I want to see this.

That's a pity. I just spent $135 million on a house at the beach. If only I waited a bit longer I could have gone for this scenic castle in Romania...


I wonder if there's any "paranormal" activity around the castle? Places like this usually crawls with creepy things that go bump in the night. Especially a place where Vlad (supposedly) murdered thousands of people in extremely violent ways...

Certainly interesting. I saw an interesting series on one of the learning channels regarding him and his homes.

To bad they just couldn't "give" it to someone who would be willing to take care of it (like myself).

I hope who ever buys it takes good care of it.

OK anybody want to throw in? $135 million is a bit much for me alone, but for 2, it's reasonable.

Well, $135mil does seem pretty steep... but if I had the money.

All historical sense put aside, your average castle does not come cheap.
I would imagine quite a few paranormal foundations are scrambliing for sponsors/investors.

Me, I would like it as a nice summer home. Fish, hunt, impale...

If I was rich .. like the Hiltons rich .. I'd buy it and turn it into a spooky hotel. Rich old world decorations ... not cheap goth ... but very old world rich ....

It would be cool.

As a musician I'd love to record my debut album up there... Imagine the vibes you'd pick up jamming in a place like that!

The boring thing is that the royal family has lived there for a long time, which spoils the whole "Dracula's Castle" name.

135 million as a starting point...if they are looking for bidders that's probably a good start.

Nope, our Vlad was born in Transylvania!

Romania has to hold the crown when it comes to naming locations; Transylvania & Carpathia are two of the best.

The article says he stayed there once.


Bran castle, 30km (20mi) south of Brasov in Transylvania, is neither Dracula's nor Vlad's castle despite the popular myth, the address, the talking tour and the admission price. It is believed that Vlad used the place as a B&B a couple of times but the castle itself is too cheerily turretted and whitewashed-polite to have much appeal as the lair of a beast.

Vlad's real palace is the more fitting and sombre ruins of Poienari citadel in the Arges valley some 450km (280mi) northwest of Bucharest.
