Dracula is for the Romanians an important historical figure while for the foreigners is a vampire. Visit the Monastery of Snagov and discover reality.
Legends of vampires have existed for centuries, even millennia. The Mesopotamians, the Romans, even the Ancient Greeks, all had blood-drinking entities in their culture which can be considered the ancestors of modern vampires. Nevertheless, the image and description of these spirits/entities, as we know them today, date from the 18th century – and from nowhere else than Southeastern Europe and particularly Transylvania.
