Welcome to the place where I was born, Romania, the former kingdom of Vlad the Impaler (Dracula's real-life persona)! 

Direct descendants of Roman legionnaires who settled here more than 2000 years ago, Romanians will welcome you with bread, salt and wine. Mysterious castles and secluded monasteries are part of Romania's breathtaking Carpathian Mountains landscape.
