Going into the village center of Bran.

Bran is the village of the commune with the same name in Brasov County, Transylvania, Romania It lies at 30 km from the city of Brașov. It has a population of 1,492 inhabitants in 2011.

The medieval Bran Castle, which was once besieged by Vlad the Impaler, is a popular tourist destination, partly because it resembles the home of Dracula in Bram Stoker’s novel.

I got to Bran Castle, then let’s get inside the castle.

The Teutonic Order began construction of a wooden fort known as Dietrichstein in the early 13th century. After the fort’s destruction in 1242 by Mongols, King Sigismund of Hungary ordered the construction of a stone castle in 1377, while the settlement of Bran began to develop nearby.
