Whenever we hear the names of Transylvania, a region in Romania, we immediately attach it to the stories of Dracula. This place with its medieval towns and castles creates a mysterious atmosphere that is worth the visit. From the mysteriously charming castle to village life, from beautiful natural places to salt mines, Transylvania has more to offer to every visitor. While this town houses the infamous Dracula castle, the salt mines will give aid for your weak lungs.
Bran Castle, the infamous Dracula Castle
All thanks to the Dracula novel by Bram Stoker as well as the 1992 Hollywood movie, Bran Castle is known to be the home to Dracula. But in reality, it is an impressive structure without the added horrific reputation. A mediaeval castle set on a mountain ridge with the dramatic landscape around, this castle is bound to take anyone’s breath away. Built as a strategic fortress to prevent the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, this 700-year-old architectural beauty has its own history.
This castle, also known as the corvin castle, carries its own legends. The symbol of the family- a raven holding a golden ring in its beak, is the base of the legends. This castle is a wonder where the renaissance meets gothic. People looking for some thrill and medieval feeling should definitely pay a visit to this 15th Century fortified residence.
Here is something that looks out of the world while providing some health benefits as well. Salt mines are the only mines which literally provide healthy air. The mines are not only a treat for the eyes but also for the lungs. The salty air of the mines helps people with good health. Give your lungs something to enjoy while you enjoy the visual beauty.
