Have an extra $135 million lying around? Well, then, the Romanian castle that served as an inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula could be yours!
The Associated Press reports that Bran Castle, which was built in the 13th century on a cliff near Brasov in central Romania, has been put on the market by Archduke Dominic Habsburg, whose family lived in the castle from the 1920s until ousted by the communists in 1948. The fortress was returned to him by the government last year.
Bran Castle was restored in the late 1980s following the end of communist rule, and became a tourist destination touted as “Dracula’s Castle.” According to legend, Vlad the Impaler, Stoker’s inspiration for Count Dracula, spent a night there in the 1400s. An estimated 450,000 people visit the castle each year.
Although no price has been announced, a representative for Hapsburg said the castle would sell for more than $135 million.
