Bran Castle is a national monument and landmark. The fortress is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia. The castle is famous because of persistent myths that it was once the home of Vlad the Impaler, a famous or infamous medieval warlord; however, there is no evidence that he ever lived there. According to most accounts, the Impaler spent two days in the Bran dungeon, as the area was occupied by the Ottoman Empire at the time. Because of the disputed connections between Vlad and the fictional character Dracula, the castle is marketed to foreign tourists as Dracula's Castle.
