Airbnb takes you to visit DraculaBy Sazi Marroquín
"Nestled in the Carpathian Mountains, high in the heart of Transylvania lays the home of the most chilling tale of the nineteenth century. Are you brave enough to test the myth?"
With this invitation, Airbnb launched a contest, fit only for the brave and the lovers of terror: this year, two people will be able to spend the night of the 31st of October at the Bran Castle, the ominous site that inspired the novel of the grim Count Dracula, who sucked blood from his victims and turned them into creatures of the dark.
Winners will be transported through Transylvania in a horse-drawn carriage, in the manner and fashion of Bram Stoker’s mythical novel. At the count’s castle, they will be able to explore the labyrinth of lamp-lit corridors, creepy nooks, and squeaky staircases, as well as enjoying an intimate candlelit dinner, prepared exactly as Jonathan Hawker’s meal is described in ‘Dracula’.
Here’s the best part: the guests will sleep in luxurious velvet-trimmed coffins in the seclusion of the Count’s crypt.
And guess what, Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker’s great grandnephew is the host. As any other lodging in Airbnb, the Bran Castle has its own site, with the host profile and a series of conditions.
So now you know, “enter freely, go safely, and leave some of the happiness you bring.”
