Romanian Royalty

Wednesday, 19 June 2013

Romania has a sense of nostalgia like very few places we have been before...
It feeds your senses with hearty food, fiery vin fiert (hot spiced wine) and stories of vampires and their drop-dead gorgeous victims.
The scenery is what you would expect in an enchanted world or a middle-age fairy tale and they have some spectacular castles to boot! Coming from Africa to experience these in the middle of winter was absolutely enchanting.

Bran Castle below is particularly famous as it is also better known as Dracula's Castle even though no evidence was ever found that the bloodthirsty Count Vlad Dracul resided or spent any time at this fortress in Transylvania.
