Top sigths of Romania
There are several dozen fortresses and castles in the territory of modern Romania. Bran Castle is worth closest attention because numerous legends about Count Dracula are connected with this castle. In the beginning of the 15th century the castle was an important strategic facility. Bran Castle was built exclusively with the money got as donations from locals. To thank for the donations, the locals were exempt from taxes. Nowadays, halls of the castle are decorated with beautiful old furniture and other items that are considered precious museum artifacts. Several halls were dedicated for the exhibition of the Museum of History and Medieval Art. Here visitors are able to see collections of wonderful paintings, tapestries and sculptures. Several villages, which are located not far away from Bran, are also an interesting place worth visiting as travellers can buy traditional Romanian cheese and beautiful items made of wool there.
