Those who want to spend a night in the Bran castle can do this on the Halloween night, on October 31st. A famous booking site offers as a prize an overnight stay in the famous castle. Moreover, the winners will even be greeted by the great-great grandson of Dracula’s writer, Bram Stoker.
Two lucky people will sleep in the Bran Castle. That’s because the castle will open its doors for one night, in a competition organized by Airbnb website, reports The Telegraph.
Two guests will be hosted by the great-grandson of the writer of Dracula, Bram Stocker – Dacre Stoker.
To have this experience, Airbnb platform users should send a comment to answer the question ‘What would you say to Count Dracula if you meet him in the castle?’ Until October 26, 2016.
The guests can visit the 57 rooms of the castle and can look at the sunset from the terrace of the castle.
‘A secret passage leads to the first-floor dining room, where they will dine by candlelight, prepared exactly as described by Bram Stoker – the chicken paprikash. After a hearty meal, you will be allowed to sleep in luxurious velvet trimmed coffins,’ says the presentation on Airbnb.
The winners must be aged over 18 and be willing to travel to Bran.
Bran Castle is a historical and architectural monument located in Bran-Rucar, 30 km away from Brasov.
Initially, Bran Castle was a military fortress meant for defense, based on the form of an irregular quadrilateral. In time, the castle has undergone many changes, including the addition of the south tower, building a rectangular tower to the east, and between 1883 and 1886, the roof was covered with tiles.
The fortress was transformed into a royal residence in 1920, once with Queen Mary’s accession to the throne, and during 1920-1929 the most important restoration was performed.
