Vlad didn't just impale enemies. He also impaled corrupt boyars.
Seems to be the only thing that ever worked against corruption in these parts.

Garlic is natural antibiotic. At that times illness was connected with evil spirits and they could be chased away by eating garlic.

Great video, but the real castle of "Count Dracula"(Vlad Tepes) is Cetatea Poenari that is near Lake Vidraru at the beginning of Transfagarasan road(in the heart of Romania) not in Moldova.

Anyone can read the true story of Vlad Dracula on Wikipedia. Since so many tourists came to Romania and wanted to see a place that has a connection to Dracula (and because other citadels where he actually lived in are much harder to get to) someone chose Bran as that place to mimic Dracula's place. But Transylvania was then under Hungarian rule (Bran region was populated by Germanic people) and Vlad was a prince in Wallachia (southern Romania) so he was just a visitor to Bran & locked there. Actually Vlad was taken by the ottomans to Istanbul as a kid then returned to fight them at home because he was a devoted Christian as his father. His father was a member of the Dragon Order, a Christian order (following the footsteps of the Crusades orders) of the Holy Roman Empire meant to fight the enemies of Christianity.

It's been 6 years since last time I've seen my land. Last time I saw Brașov was winter too. Miss the snow. The cold. The smell of winter in the mountains. This year I'm coming back in vacation so I'm excited about it.. Oh.. For us Vlad Țepeș is an inspiration, iconic our prince The one who dared to fight against otomans 🇹🇷. The one who belong to the Order of the dragon - Societas Draconistarum. A true hero a true legend. And legends never dies..

I climbed almost 1500 stairs up a mountain to the real Dracula Castle, the Poenari Castle ruins. Bran Castle is mostly fake and a tourist trap. There is no historical document attesting that Dracula ever visited Bran. Poenari is the real deal.

Beautiful! Transylvania is gorgeous with amazing landscapes.I visited Brasov and the Bran Castle in 2012.We started with 3 days in Budapest, Hungary.From Budapest we took the night train to Brasov.Then off to Sibiu and Sighisoara, before finally ending up in Bucharest, which is the total opposite of Transilvania.A real dirty shithole with absolutely nothing to see.
