Dracula and Vlad Tepes - myth and history
Our entry's purpose is to debate the disputed problem of Dracula's myth. Was he really a vampire? Actually, we tell you our opinion in this matter. We think that the myth of Dracula was created by certain writers that neglected the fact that they may destroy the glory of the brave Romanian ruler, Vlad the Impaler, and we try, as much as we can, to reestablish this glory. On the other hand, we invite you to communicate us your opinion about this subject, via Internet, sending messages on our e-mail addresses, which you can find in the "About Us" section of the entry. We have also written a chapter concerning the creation and the development of this myth, from the source (the life and the reign of Vlad the Impaler), passing through literature (analyzing books like the novel "Dracula by Bram Stoker") and finishing with the movies we see today at the cinema. Besides this information, you can learn many more things. You can find out how Europe was in the XV-th century. You can also find out aspects from the history of some famous places, like Bran Castle and you can discover were Vlad the Impaler was buried. You can also relax with some little games that we have put on our entry and you can check the knowledge you gained by completing a quiz.
