Wow, those are beautiful castles. It makes me wish I was going to Romania tomorrow...

The architectural style is absolutely stunning and very different from the castles/palaces I've seen before.

The return of Peles estate delayed by the negotiations for Foisor
Bucharest - The Ministry of Culture and Religious Denominations (MCC) has finalized the negotiations with the Royal House for the return of Peles Castle, but King Mihai cannot yet receive the domain from Sinaia because of the extension of the negotiations carried by the State Protocol Administration (RAAPPS) for Foisor Palace.
Although MCC has announced several times that Peles estate will be returned in September, the negotiations have not yet finished.
However, according to adviser Virgil Nitulescu, MCC has completed the discussions over Peles and Pelisor. The return of Peles estate cannot however take place because the discussions over Foisor Palace, which is under the administration of RAAPPS, are not yet completed...

Bran Castle is up for sale again. The Hapsburgs want £40 Million for it.

I do wonder whether the family have remembered that Queen Marie is buried (partly) in Bran Castle? What will happen there?

Incredible photographs of stunning castles. Romania looks mysterious, romantic and exotic by turns. Would love to travel the country and walk inside these masterpieces. Are any open for lodging by tourists?

Highlights include the Gallery, the Maces' Tower, the Knights' Hall, the Council Hall and the Chapel. The courtyard features a 100 feet well dug into stone.

I thought that photograph of the courtyard and staircase looked familiar! I am talking about the last photograph in the series. I played a computer game about Dracula and they apparently used Corvinesti as the model of the castle where the Count could be found in the game.

I've seen many pictures of the Romanian castles. They look rather exotic like they are in a faraway land. I must admit thought the only thing that I knew about Romania was County Dracula and the story about Vampires.

The stories with "vampires" have no real base in Romanian history.
There had never been a "count Dracula" but only a Prince Vlad Dracul.

I guess because of the way this story is protrayed in the media (especially around Halloween time), this is why people believe this story.

I saw a story about Romania and there was this man who claimed that he was a decescent of Prince Vlad Dracul. The way it was presented, one wasn't sure if this was true or if it was used for dramatic purposes. The story actually was about tourism in Romania and they were talking about various places in Transylvania to visit but the main focus was the castle where Prince Vlad Dracul lived. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the program or when it aired except it was several years ago.

There are of course other places in Romania to visit. In the United States whenever tourism in Romania is discussed, it's usually Transylvania the main focus being the castle where Prince Vlad Dracul lived.

I meant no disrespect to Romania. I am a fan of Bram Stoker's Dracula and enjoy many of its vampire progeny in books, tv and movies, but never have I looked down on Romania due to its literary connection to the world of the vampire.

Prince Vlad Tepes lived a period in Transylvania and that's why there are some legends in no connection with hystoric facts.
