The castle and the area itself, for me personally has a very strong meaning since it makes up a great part of my country’s history and identity. However, as I visited the place with my boyfriend who is not Romanian I noticed that he was a little disappointed by the castle giving all the Dracula publicity. Well , for all the foreign tourists out there, this is not a hunted house, this is a historical place with a lot more meaning than a vampire guy sucking blood. That is just the cover story. So be prepared to read and hear about the real story and about the powerful people who had lived in this magical castle.
Ps. Not to blame the tourists; the place is ill advertised.

I enjoyed viewing this castle. It is truly amazing. It is also surrounded by various restaurants and a market.
There is, however, quite an influx of people visiting Bran castle and it is quite hard to find somewhere to eat, without waiting for ages and ages.
I would definitely recommend visiting Bran castle. If you are going with small children and intend to eat at a restaurant there, I recommend taking a snack with you so that they can eat it while you queue for a place.

Amazing ! I visited many years ago but I enjoyed too much !
The most fantastic trip was arrive at the place because I lost the way but fortunately the Romanian people are fantastic and mostly persons o requested information about place were very nice and informed me the right way ! Now is more easy to arrive and many things changed and is better now !
The castle is amazing, full of history and surely I got really freak about some places inside castle ... million goosebumps ! But I really recommend because it’s amazing, it’s great, it’s real !! I recommend to take a moment to visit the places around ( restaurants, souvenirs sellers, nature around... you will see how great and nice the Romanian people are !!)

WOW!!! What an amazingly beautiful historic building. Keep in mind when you visit here, it was not Dracula's home. He was detained here only for a short time. However the military background is fascinating. If you have school age kids, have them bring their schools identification cards for a discount. Also, if you want to use the headset tour, make sure to pay for that at the bottom of the hill entrance. You will receive the headset when you enter the castle. If you have your own wired headphones, bring them. The headphones they have do not stay in your ears. Also, if you can read English or Romanian, there really is no need to get the headset as everything in the recording is on a plaque on the wall to be read. Be prepared for lots of stairs and small staircases. Overall, we really enjoyed the tour and it was our teenagers favorite place to visit that day.

I liked it very much. From the top of the castle you can see the city and the mountains, a really breathtaking view. The castle itself is way bigger on the inside, with lots of chambers and corridors which was an unexpected surprise.
