Fagaras fortress is one of the largest and best preserved medieval citadels in Eastern Europe”. In the past, the castle was the pivot of the regional power. Mentioned in 1455 Fagaras Fortress was built in a strategic place halfway between Sibiu and Brasov and trade markets in the vicinity of Wallahia.
Built on a rock not far away from Brasov city we find the silhouette of one of the world’s most famous fortification: Bran Castle erroneously sensationalized as „Dracula’s Castle”. It seems that Vlad the Impaler never lived in the castle. However, the legend seems to be stronger than reality … here pouring into films as a direct allusion to the alleged vampire traits of the Wallachian ruler.
Located on one of the oldest trade routes where the exchange of goods took place between Romanian Country, Moldova and Transylvania in the late sixteenth – century Brasov becomes a prosperous city and one of the most important cultural centers in the country.
