Bran Castle is the most prominent landmark in the country. His former owner Count Vlad was a three-time Voivode of Wallachia, ruling in the 1450s, and was nicknamed the Impaler for his favorite method of execution. Bram Stoker, an Irish author, got inspired by his reputation and depicted Dracula in his novel about vampires. Numerous tour operators offer 4 to 10-day spine-tingling adventurous trips to the dark castle shrouded with countless legends. Though not all of them are actually myths—come and find on your own what is true and what's fake.

The tours run throughout the year, but the best time and the most appropriate atmosphere for this activity is undoubtedly Halloween. In fact, Bran Castle is the most popular place to celebrate Halloween in Romania. During the spooky season, it traditionally hosts Halloween tours that include costume parties and other fun.

If you have to choose between winter and summer time, the latter offers better conditions for hiking—thus the period between April and November is most favourable.
