Bran Castle’s Night Pieces
Live and don’t tell!

The journey will carry the visitors from Bram Stoker to Bran, from Vlad the Impaler and Vlad Dracul to Dracula, in a place where ghosts reappear. The undead, Dames Blanches and the luminous figure of Queen Marie of Romania, legends of the woods, a pharaoh mummy or various other strange objects of our desires avert us from discerning between historical reality and fiction, between legend and imaginary.
