Halloween with Dracula, Romania

If you want to spend Halloween with someone tall, dark and dripping with blood, consider a tour with the Transylvanian Society of Dracula.

A week-long tour takes in creepy castles and ancient towns between Bucharest and Transylvania. Running year-round tours since 1997, the society presents sites visited by Prince Vlad Dracula and inspirational locations for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Guests even enjoy the same local dish in the same local restaurant as the English solicitor in Stoker’s novel.

Vampire fans can see a folk show, a mock witch trial and a Lady Transylvania beauty pageant, leading up to a costume dinner and dance at Castle Dracula Hotel on Halloween. Just be sure to lock your door afterwards.
