Ideal for kids to learn about the fictional, blood-drinking Count Dracula, Bran Castle (Dracula’s Castle, although he never lived here) lies just outside the medieval town of Brasnov, which is a fascinating attraction in itself. The 14th century castle was originally built to protect the town from invaders and is a massive and imposing structure. It doesn’t need much imagination to see why it inspired Bram Stoker to pen the Dracula novel. The castle sits atop a hill amid an eerie forest and sports many lofty towers that look menacing at dawn and dusk.
