Dracula’s birthplace in Sighisoara, Romania
Sighisoara is a medieval city in the heart of Transylvania, ROMANIA, where Vlad the Impaler (more known as Dracula) was born around 1431. (Vlad the Impaler – “Vlad Tepes” in Romanian – was the source of inspiration for the famous Vampire Count Dracula, known worldwide thanks to Bram Stocker’s horror novel “Dracula”)
The citadel is still inhabited and is listed as a World Heritage Site. Colourful houses, cobblestone streets, a beautiful Clock Tower, a covered wooden staircase and a church on the hill, will take you back in time into a magic atmosphere that rivals with Prague’s old centre.
After so much walking, take a rest and taste a good Romanian traditional meal in one of the many beautiful restaurants in the Citadel! If you are lucky, you might be assisted while eating by a very polite stray dog who would be more than happy for a little piece of Sarmale or Polenta.
A special surprise is waiting at the end of the pictures!
