Bran castle, which is located in the principality of Transylvania, Romania is the only edifice in the entire country which exactly matches the description of legendary vampire Dracula’s castle in Bram Stoker’s novel. Which makes sense, as it’s been reported that the author used a description of the very same castle as a reference whilst writing. And this Halloween, thanks to Airbnb, you and a guest can win a complimentary trip to stay there in vampiric style.
The rental company’s promotion, which requires no purchase, is perfect for horror, history, and literature fans alike. Upon arrival – “anytime after 7pm,” as specified on the contest page – the winners will be greeted by their host Dacre Stoker, great grandnephew of the famed writer, and taken on a guided tour through the castle’s labyrinthian corridors. Following the tour is a grand candlelit dinner in the main dining hall, before the guests are left to rest in the Count’s Crypt – in which they will sleep in velvet-lined coffins. To enter, you need only submit a short answer to the following question: “what would you say to the Count if you were to come face-to-fang with him in his own castle?” Just be sure to leave your garlic and crucifixes at home, as neither are welcome within the hallowed walls.
