Bran Castle is in the Brasov County in Transylvania. One of the most beautiful and touristic areas of Romania.
The castle’s position on the border of Transylvania gave it great military and commercial importance until the border of Transylvania moved in 1836.
After a nine-year restoration, Bran Castle remained a favorite royal residence until communism forced the royal family from Romania.
Despite the foreboding exterior, the interior of Bran Castle is quite homely, in a castle kind of way.
Bran Castle is hosting a temporary exhibition of Medieval Instruments of Torture collected throughout Eastern Europe.
During the summer season, Bran Castle hosts outdoor events such as jazz and classical concerts, children’s fairytale events and special movie screenings on the castle grounds.
