why was Bran Castle associated with Dracula ?




Bran Castle,located in Transylvania, Romania, was originally a fortress built by the knights of the Teutonic Order in the year 1212. 
Later on, towards the end of the 13th century, it was taken over by the Saxons in that region in order  to protect the city of Brasov, an important trade center.

From 1920 to 1957, Bran served as a royal residence, a gift of the people of Brasov to queen Marie of Romania.The castle is now a museum open to tourists, displaying art and furniture collected by Queen Marie.

Bran Castle overlooks the  picturesque village of Bran. Narrow winding stairways lead through some 60 timbered rooms, many connected by underground passages, which house collections of furniture, weapons, and amour dating from the 14th to the 19th centuries. 
Bran Castle is associated with the legendary Count
