WHO IS DRACULA
Vlad the Impaler: The Real Dracula
Count Dracula might be a fictional character who makes the blood curdle on Halloween, but his historical namesake is not. Vlad III, known in his heyday as Dracula — or Drăculea, in old Romanian — was a medieval prince with a figurative thirst for blood. As his other nickname, “Vlad the Impaler,” suggests, Vlad had a penchant for brutally punishing his enemies. Many historians have implied that fictional Dracula was inspired by Vlad III, and some have even gone as far as to suggest that Vlad himself drank human blood.
The only castle that might be considered the actual Castle Dracula was the castle built and inhabited by Vlad the Impaler during his years as Prince of Wallachia. The Dracula’s Castle was built on the edge of the Bran Pass and nowadays lures guests worldwide who wish to partake in the legend of the Count Dracula.
