    Great article – I was unaware of this place until I read it. I’ll be in Romania in a couple of weeks and was just working out where to head except for Bucharest (and a night train to Chisnau, Moldova). This place looks like its worth it, whether the Dracula reference or not. Safe travels.

      Sighisoara is definitely worth a visit. You might also like checking out Peles Castle which is in Sinaia. It’s gorgeous! If you can squeeze it in, I would definitely go to Brasov. That’s one of our “homes.”

    Romania sits high on our family bucket list – as it comes up in every conversation starting with where should we go next. Dracula’s birthplace, along with Transylvania will be one of our visits. Thanks for the interesting history lesson.

      The whole Transylvania region is absolutely beautiful. So many great places to see, like Sighisoara

    We haven’t visited Romania, but Sighisoara is just the sort of spooky place I’d like to see!

    Great pics!

      It’s a cool town. I hope you get to see it. There are so many wonderful ones here that also have a bit of spookiness to them, too.

    Someone mentioned Vlad in one of the Halloween travel chats and I’ve been meaning to look him up, so thanks for this! He seems like a pretty normal guy, aside from his military achievements. Funny how stories evolve. 🙂

      I’m not so sure I’d call him normal. He was pretty blood-thirsty. But I definitely think a lot of the rumors about him are embellishments.
