Thank you so very much for this fascinating piece on Dracula!! I grew up scared of vampires as a small boy because I''d watched Bela Lugosi when I was a little to young to understand.

Well the legend starts when this man Vlad the Impaler was chosen by the well-known writer Bram Stoker to be the leading hero for his book published in 1897. Since then, Dracula and Transylvania, the land where the mysterious castle full of ghosts and vampires is located, became the subject of many movies, over...

Transylvania. Dracula pops up in most people’s minds when they hear that word, and with good reason.  Bram Stoker’s novel took place in Transylvania, but the writer himself actually never visited Romania.  Although there are...
