“Poenari Fortress. Standing on a cliff but now in ruins this is known as the real castle of Dracula (Vlad Tepes). To get to the top you must climb up its 1400 steps (takes approx. 30 minutes). Once you arrive at the top of the castle you will find that it is surprisingly small; one third collapsed down the mountainside in 1888. However, entering through a narrow wooden bridge, you come across the crumbling remains of two towers within; the prism shaped one was Vlad`s (Dracula`s) residential quarters. From here, according to the legend, Vlad the Impaler`s wife flung herself from the window, declaring that it was better to die than be captured by the Turks, who were besieging the castle. ”
