Country Side Of Dracula

  1.  
  2. Romania Country-side of Dracula
  3. Welcome to the place where I was born, Romania, the former kingdom of Vlad the Impaler (Dracula's real-life persona)!  Direct descendants of Roman legionnaires who settled here more than 2000 years ago, Romanians will welcome you with bread, salt and wine. Mysterious castles and secluded monasteries are part of Romania's breathtaking Carpathian Mountains landscape. 
  4. Vlad is known in Romanian history as Vlad Tepes, that is, Vlad the Impaler, for his penchant for impaling invaders, criminals, and personal enemies alike. Although some of his victims appear to have been German colonists who built Bran Castle at the end of the 14th century, historians have cautioned that there is little or no connection at all between Vlad the Impaler and Bran Castle.

  10. Dacians are a branch of Thracians that inhabitanted Dacia (corresponding to modern Romania and Moldova) and parts of Moesia (mostly in northern Bulgaria in southeastern Europe). The Dacian kingdom reached its maximum expansion during King Burebista . The region came under the scrutiny of Rome when the Roman province, bordering along the Danube, Moesia, was attacked by the Dacians in 87 AD during Emperor Domitian's reign. The Dacians were eventually defeated by the Roman Empire under Emperor Trajan in two campaigns stretching from 101 AD to 106 AD and the core of their kingdom was turned into the Roman province of Dacia. .
