For Sale: Castle Dracula

Bran Castle, or Castle Dracula and the possible home of Vlad the Impaler - the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula - is up for sale. For £40 million ($78 million) this 57-room medieval castle built in 1377 could be yours. The Romanian government has first refusal but if it decides not to purchase it, it could end up in private hands.

If bought by a private buyer, the castle would need to remain as a state-run museum for the next few years but could then be turned into a private residence if required, although I don't know who would be crazy enough to live with the ghost of Vlad the Impaler. Link - via Cynical-C

Apparently (according to most historical info the subject) this was never Vlad's castle, although he may have once attacked it.
His actual castle, which you can reach via a hydro-electricity station, is falling to bits on the side of a cliff.
Still a wicked castle though!

I would have a room for my studio, turn the dungeon into a giant theater / D&D game room / pool hall...and then fill one of the tower rooms full of theremins and a cadre of speakers playing wolf howls at night...just for driving the neighbors nuts with. ;-)

And if you're stinking rich, you can bloody well afford the heating bill! *GRIN* Otherwise, you can follow in the footsteps of the previous owner, and just burn the peasants for warmth...
