Dracula’s Castle Just Went On The Market, But There Is One Catch That Will Give You Chills

Dracula, written by Bram Stoker,  has become the cornerstone of modern-day vampire lore.

But Dracula is more than just a story, Stoker actually based his book on the life and times of a vicious Romanian warlord, Vlad the Impaler. A man turning into a bat is a stretch, but Vlad was all too real. The castle where he lived recently went up for sale, and what’s hiding inside will send shivers down your spine.
