Description

Bran Castle aka Dracula's Castle is a military fortress, built in 1377 by the Hungarian King Ludovic I. D'Anjou in southern Transylvania was built to stop the Ottoman invasion of Europe. Completed in 1382, it was " THE GATE" of Europe that protected the southern border of the Austrian Empire from the invaders during the war. In the time of peace it functioned as a customs office and collected a lot of money from the taxes paid by everyone who wanted to enter Transylvania. Both merchants and ordinary travellers had to pay the road toll. At the end of the 19th century it became world famous through the Irishman Bram Stoker after he published Dracula, the most famous horror book in the world After a large explosion in the southwest tower in 1827, the fortress was abandoned until 1920, when Queen Mary of Romania, wife of the second German king, began a massive restoration of this imposing structure. Confiscated by the Communists in 1948, it was returned to Habsburg ownership 61 years later
