5 weird and wonderful places to visit in Romania


Snagov Monastery - Strada Mânăstirea Vlad Ţepeş, Snagov Island, Bucharest, Romania

A tiny island lies just off Bucharest and is the home of Snagov Monastery, which local legends say is the burial place of Vlad the Impaler, who inspired Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.” The monastery dates back to the 14th century and it is unsure whether the brutal and cruel Vlad Tepes III was actually buried there. Historians have found human and horse bones on the site, but nothing to point to them belonging to Vlad, but it is still a fascinating place to visit.
