DRACULA

Bram Stokers “Dracula” is based on

Vlad

Tepes

.

Vlad

was a brutal Romanian ruler from the fifteenth century. He was known for torturing his enemies brutally.

Vlad

wasn’t a vampire at all, but he did invent some forms of torture and used the nickname “

Dracul

” or “Dracula” which means both “devil” and “dragon.”

He died at the end of 1476, in a battle against the Turks, somewhere around Bucharest, but the cause of his death it remains unknown.

WEATHER

Slide11

The Romanian traditional clothing has remained unchanged throughout history and can be traced back to the earliest times. The basic garment for both men and women is a shirt or chemise, which is made from hemp, linen or woolen fabric. This was tied round the waist using a fabric belt, narrow for women and wider for men. The cut of this basic chemise is similar for men and women. In the past those worn by women usually reached to the ankles while men's shirts were shorter and worn over trousers or leggings made from strips of fabric. Women always wear an apron over the chemise. This was initially a single piece of cloth wrapped round the lower part of their bodies and secured by a belt at the waist, as is still seen in the east and south east of Romania. In Transylvania and the south west of Romania this became two separate aprons, one worn at the back and one at the front.

HOW TO GET THERE

Slide17

Bran Castle “Draculas Castle”

Some say that Transylvania sits on one of Earth's strongest magnetic fields and its people have extra-sensory perception. Vampires are believed to hang around crossroads on St. George's Day, April 23, and the eve of St. Andrew, November 29. The area is also home to Irish author Bram Stoker's Dracula, and it's easy to get caught up in the tale while driving along winding roads through dense, dark, ancient forests and over mountain passes. Dracula is literally translated in Gaelic as

Drac

Ullah

meaning bad blood.
