It runs along the famous Bran Castle, known as the Castle of "Dracula", after Bram Stocker created the legend of Count Dracula. In reality the castle was built by the Saxons as a guard post to defend and control the trade route that connected the Transylvania and Valachia regions in the Middle Ages. The term Bran means "border". The place is linked to the legendary prince Vlad the Impaler who fought a series of struggles in the area during the fifteenth century. In our country the castle is known as the summer residence for Queen Maria who came here often, far from court life in Bucharest.
