Although not many know what Transylvania is famous for, besides Dracula, we decided to go for a popular way of doing tourism. So, it seems a Dracula Night experience can be found on Airbnb nowadays. It’s an experience one can never forget for sure. It all happens at Bran Castle (Castelul Bran in the Romanian language), in Transylvania Romania. This is the same castle as the one that inspired Bram Stoker novel.
Walking in the forests around the castle, sleeping in a coffin, eating the same food as Dracula did, hearing the howling wolves around this magic place. All of this is now possible due to some people that made this possible.
Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew, will answer your knock on the castle’s imposing wooden doors. He will be your host for the night and resident expert on Transylvanian lore.
Would You Want to Spend Halloween in the Castle Which Inspired the Legend of Dracula in Transylvania?
That is precisely what more than 80,000 people have applied to do via the accommodation website, Airbnb.
Dracula night experience is held on the night of 31st October to early morning the 1st of November, on Halloween Night. An unusual and magic night that now takes you back in time and space precisely in the Transylvania woods.
Therefore it wouldn’t be entirely magic if there were not some secret doors and secret stairs. And here they are!
A secret passage on the first floor leads to the grand dining room where an intimate candlelit dinner will await, prepared as accurately as described in Bram Stoker’s novel. Following the hearty, blood-enriching meal, you will be invited to bed in luxurious velvet-trimmed coffins in the seclusion of the Count’s crypt.
So, dear friend pack your things and come to Transylvania! Dracula night experience now exists!
I am sure that this is just the beginning of new adventures.
