If you want to enjoy nature, you can admire the impressive wild landscape (it’s a mountainous area with beautiful wild woods, perfectly preserved) and check-out some unique touristic objectives, like: the Rasnov medieval fortress, the “Valley of the Citadel” Cave, the “LiBEARty” bear reservation from Zarnesti, a “Dinosaurs’ Theme Park” and Dracula’s Castle, of course.
The Rasnov medieval fortress which guards the festival site (placed right at the foot of the mountain) is considered to be built between 1211 and 1225, during the rule of Teutonic Knights in Burzenland. This citadel was part of a defence system for the Transylvanian villages exposed to outside invasions, but archaeological research revealed the existence of other fortification traces on the citadel hill, which date back to prehistoric and Dacian times (dated before Christ). So, those passionate about history, battles and legends will surely find this place beautiful and interesting.
Things will get even more breathtaking, as one may witness “live” fights and competitions between fierce medieval knights, which will take place in the valley of the festival, right next to everyone’s eyes. Those strong enough to challenge these valiant warriors will be warmly invited to show their bravery!
Last, but not least, the Dracula’s Castle awaits all those who want to go closer to the home of this legendary vampire. The Bran fortress (a Turkish name meaning “gate”), on its real name, started to be erected in 1211, by The Teutonic Knights (Ordo domus Mariae Sanctae Theutonicorum Hierosolimitanorum” – a catholic religious order formed in Palestine during the late 12th century by German crusaders) and was completed in 1388. The castle was built on a steep cliff as it had some strategic roles: to guard the commercial road passing by (it was also an important Transylvanian custom point – one of the important entering gates of Transylvania) and to protect the Eastern border of this region, in an attempt to stop the Ottoman Empire’s expansion. In short, this castle is the place to be for those willing to experience the history, the intrigue and the magic of this area filled with myths.
