This Halloween enjoy a stay at Dracula’s Transylvanian Castle

Published on : Tuesday, October 18, 2016

brams-castleAirbnb is offering Halloween stays at Dracula’s actual castle in Transylvania. The Transylvanian fortress will open its doors overnight to two lucky (or maybe not) guests for the first time in nearly 70 years.

 

Two guests will have the chance to be wined and dined at the iconic site then left alone to lie down in red velvet-trimmed coffins just as Dracula did in the Bram Stoker horror novel.

 

The guests will be hosted by Dacre Stoker, the Irish author’s great nephew who is, Airbnb says, “a well-respected vampire expert and passionate advocate of his great uncle’s novel.”

 

Airbnb is running a global competition to win the spooky stay. To enter, would-be vampire hunters must write a short passage on what they would say if they came “face-to-fang” with Count Dracula.

 

The winners will be invited to recreate the story of Stoker’s protagonist Jonathan Harker, arriving at their destination by horse-drawn carriage before dining on a “blood-enriching meal” and bedding down for the night in “luxurious velvet trimmed Dracula coffins.”

 

The winners must also abide by a set of rules unique to their Dracula-themed trip — specifically, a ban against garlic or any “garlic-scented items,” no silver jewelry or holy symbols, and absolutely no mirror selfies. The guests are also required to close all curtains before sunrise.
