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...

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.
