Sheep at Bran

Bran Castle was originally a fortress built by the Knights of the Teutonic Order in the year 1212. It was known by the name of Dietrichstein at the time. Later on, towards the end of the 13th century, it was taken over by the Saxons in that region in order to protect the City of Brasov, an important trade center. Vlad Tepes used Bran Castle as headquarters for his incursions into Transylvania. This castle should not be mistaken for the actual Castle Dracula (now in ruins), which is located on the Arges River, at a more secluded site. Today the place is a museum visited by tourists from all over the world.

And a warm welcome from Paris too. Romania is dear to the heart of French people because -among other cultural reasons - our languages are so close. (Mind you, when I see Andreea message in Romanian I am no longer so sure!)

Anyway, enjoy you blog and show us the best pics of Brasov.
