Known more famously throughout Europe at Dracula Castle thanks to Bram Stoker’s original work on vampires, this old building had housed royalty since its opening back in 1420 when Vlad Dracul (the father) first claimed ownership under Romanian rule. In fact, until recently, this castle served primarily just that.
