Brasov

Written on: Monday August 20th, 2012

A journal entry from: November 2011 until...

From the groovy tunes of Alba Iulia to a couple of days in the touristy old town of Brasov. The town itself was very scenic. The castle of Vlad the Impaler (of Bram Stoker/Dracula fame) was difficult to see for tourists and souvenir shops selling vampire masks and fake blood.

My advice to anyone wanting to see an authentic Romanian castle - try one of the other 1041 castles in the country.

Disclaimer - I just made up the number 1041 - but there are many, many great castles here.
