The Bran fortress is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia, on Highway 73 and is known as "Dracula's Castle", said to be the home of the dracula-ish Vlad Tepes, ruler of Wallachia. But there was not a single picture of Vlad, or of Dracula for that matter, in the whole complex!

The only things that kinda links this castle to Dracula is this eerie medieval cross that you see on a hill beside the palace...
