I Am Dracula, the Vampire Count… and I Welcome You to My Land…
I am Dracula, the VAMPIRE COUNT… AND I WELCOME YOU TO MY LAND…
Welcome to Borgo Pass, the Romanian Dracula land, where the famous Irish novelist BRAM STOKER, the author of the famous novel published in 1897 imagined and located the fantastic CASTLE of the hero who shook the world, „DRACULA” -THE VAMPIRE COUNT. After the BIBLE, the fiction novel „DRACULA” takes the second place in the World - as it was translated in most languages around the world. In Bram Stoker's vision, here was the place where the dreadful vampire had the castle, as the region was described as follows: "... a more and more wild and uninhabited land. Many deep menacing precipices, many cascades, as if the nature would have celebrated a carnival once".
The fantastic „PASS” from the Bârgăului Mountains, which makes the connection between Transylvania and Bucovina, represents the most visiting attraction in the area. In this wonderful area, the „DRACULA” castle-hotel dates back since 1983 and is a landmark at the border between the counties of BISTRIŢA NĂSĂUD and SUCEAVA, located at the altitude of 1116 m not far from the National Road DN 17. The „DRACULA” castle-hotel which watches the large panorama of Bârgăului mountains, is the ideal place for both nature and comfort lovers. The medieval architecture of the castle and of the interior yard are impressing by their originality. The zone is imposing by the tonic climate, stimulating, with the air with high concentration of ozone and the highest of iodine in the country, creating, together with the natural factors, a curing environment for the treatment of asthenic neurosis, strain, convalescence, a good health status, for the bazedow patients, etc. With its unique picturesque, both in the summer and in the winter, the TIHUŢA area, an attraction and meeting spot for the mountain lovers, offers excellent conditions for the winter sports, being a real heaven of calm, health and recreation.
DRACULA- Dracula is a vampire, a ghost with red reflexes in the eyes, and very long canines, like wolves. He has supernatural powers, however he is submitted to a series of restrictions and even bans: from the sunrise till the sunset, he has to lay on a soil bed, the only allowed thing being to move to another place, at noon. The crucifix paralyses him, the garlic smell chases him, a branch of wild rose bans his access, beside the fact that he cannot enter a house without being previously invited. A spike thrust in the heart, when he cannot move, turns him back into dust. He can only cross waters during the high tide. Otherwise, he is immortal, he can change, upon his wish, into a wolf or a bat, and can even give orders to these creatures, as well as to rats. Deprived from an adult’s wisdom, since the vampire status represents a regression, Dracula is not less artful, having a huge physical force and moving very fast. His thirst of blood is vulgar and unabated, obscene. His victims become „undead”, that is vampires like him, as they increase in number they turn into a formidable danger. The spike thrust into his heart returned count Dracula the eternal calm.
