Hi Fredrik,

Your note is very funny, probably between Hollywood and Brasov doesn't exists too much similar things, but people that are doing tourism business in Brasov city are using some American/Hollywood tactics in order to attract people here.
For instance they say that there is a castle of Vlad Tepes/Dracula in the nearby of Brasov (the Bran Castle) but, actually, that castle never belonged to him. :-)

Nice picture! Kind regards!

Lightbulb To ncosmin: Thanks

I actually found it a bit confusing as they told us in the guided tour in Bucuresti that Vlad Tepes was only held in captivity up there in Bran, while I had always thought that he lived there. That is kind of what Brasov and Hollywood wants us to believe, so I wasn't quite sure what to think while I was there. Thanks for making it clear that he never really lived there.
