Bran Castle, The Royal Residence of Romania

After a nine-year restoration, Bran Castle remained a favorite royal residence until communism forced the royal family from Romania.

The castle was restored as a museum dedicated to the memory of the royal family of Romania. One can’t help but feel the decor might be just a little Dracula-inspired.

Despite the foreboding exterior, the interior of Bran Castle is quite homely, in a castle kind of way.
