How about spending Halloween in a citadel in wich Vlad the Impaller aka Dracula was born.

A top 10 Must-Do adventure according to Fodor's travel guide and Travel Channel.

Everyone knows and fears Dracula; still everyone wants to travel to Transylvania. If you come to think about it, Dracula is actually a pretty normal, a man that parties all night long, spends all days sleeping in a coffin – (some futurist furniture don’t you think?-), never says no to a (bloody) drink. Should you want to learn the truth, be charmed by the legend and enjoy the best Halloween party ever you’re invited to join the Halloween tour.

Hate to tell you that is NOT Dracula's castle. Thats the castle that Bram Stoker based HIS off of in the book. This is the real Dracula's Castle

Not as impresive is it? Since Stoker based his castle for dracula off that one it became known as "Dracula's Castle" and eventually everybody got confused and thought it was the real Dracula's castle. but still, it would be fun to go to a party there. It's actualy where I want to get married one day:D

Alintransylvania, your picture shows the Bran castle which has never hosted Vlad Dracul, this is only for tourists. But I agree it's a very beautiful one!
If you really want to thrill, have a night in the deep Carpathian forests with wolves, bears and maybe some others mysterious creatures!

Does anyone have seen the Lost Worlds episode "the Real Dracula"? Very interesting...Here is the part one:
