The solitary image of the castle and the Gothic architecture specific to Transylvania's Middle Ages have established an undying connection to Vlad the Impaler. Your tour of the castle will introduce you to the story of how Vlad the Impaler came to be associated with the legend of Dracula. The castle was built in the 13th century by the Saxons of Brasov where an older wooden fortification was previously built by the Teutonic Knights.
