The formidable 12th century fortress, deep in the Romanian countryside, that inspired Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula, is up for sale! Yes, the infamous Bran Castle in Transylvania, which was the inspiration for the home of the world’s most famous vampire, Count Dracula, can now be yours for a mere pittance: $66 million.
According to Cosmo:
The breathtaking structure currently belongs to descendants of the Romanian royal family, who have been operating the property as a popular museum. As the country’s largest tourist attraction, some half a million people visit its spooky halls every year. But the current owners are getting older and hope to pass the estate on to someone who will continue to build up its destination status.
So: $66 million is the going price, although it may sell for much less, especially since the Romanian government has reportedly declined the offer to buy it and continue it as a museum. According to the Financial Times, the unusual property could go for as little as $13 million! I say, we all pool our money on a Kickstarter NOW, and offer up whatever we get! LET’S OWN A CASTLE TOGETHER!
