AirBNB have recently announced that the Bran Castle, more poularly known as Dracula’s Castle, in Transylvania, Romania, will be listed as a special getaway for Halloween.
Two lucky guests will be allowed to spend the night inside the landmark, hosted by Dacre Stoker – great grand-newphew of DRACULA author Bram Stoker. The two guests will be immersed in the story of DRACULA’s protagonist, Jonathan Harker, and will even travel to the fortress in a horse-drawn carriage!
Says Stoker: “Bran Castle is where the legend of Dracula was born, and I have many stories to share as I guide the guests through the dark secret passages of the castle for a private unveiling of its many mysteries. Bram Stoker included many references to real people and real historical anecdotes and questioned whether vampires are really a myth at all.” Guests will also get a candlelit dinner and will sleep in “luxurious velvet-trimmed coffins” ALONE. The next morning the guests will be treated to breakfast on the castle’s terrace overlooking Transylvania. To win entrants must go to the listing page here and answer one question: “What would you say to the Count if you were to come face-to-fang with him in his own castle?”
