Count Dracula’s Transylvanian castle has been put on the market by its Romanian archduke owner – with a reported asking price of at least £47million, says The Daily Mail.
Hilltop fortress Bran Castle is the eastern European country’s biggest tourist attraction and attracts 560,000 visitors annually.
Previous owners of the castle, which dates back to 1211, range from Saxons to Hungarians and Teutonic knights.
Bloodsucking vampire Count Dracula may be fictional but he is said to have been based on the sadistic Vlad the Impaler, prince of Wallachia in the 15th century.
Bram Stoker is believed to have based his description of Dracula’s castle as ‘. . . on the very edge of a terrific precipice . . . with occasionally a deep rift where there is a chasm [with] silver threads where the rivers wind in deep gorges through the forests’ on that of Bran.
