Still excited about the myths and legends, poltergeists and phantoms, medieval spooky castles and fairy tales about the “undead”? Good news: you can witness the mystery in the framework of a regular tour! Europe is literally stuffed with old fortresses and mansions that are perpetually haunted by ghosts. Check the list of the scariest destinations for the real ghost busters below.
The legend about the Count Dracula is probably the most popular horror of all times. It is not a secret that the myth about a cruel vampire Count is based on real facts and has historical references. Vlad III Dracula of Wallachia (another known as Vlad The Impaler) was famous for his cruelty. According to the legends, he killed 100 000 people by impaling them on a sharp pole. His castle is located in Transylvania and welcomes tourists from all over the world. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), you won’t see the rows of torture’s blades and skeletons in chains hanging down from the ceiling. You will see his collection of weapons, medieval furniture and armors instead, which is not less fascinating. The castle of Dracula has a lot of underground tunnels and labyrinths that are very difficult to navigate, so don’t forget to follow the guide!
