A tourist trap and a commendable initiative.

In the heart of Transylvania there are two attractions very different from each other. Bran castle is undoubtably impressing but it really full of tourists and, by the way, Dracula was never here. The Libearty bear sanctuary in the nearby Zărnești is instead a lovely place where imprisoned or injured bears are rescued and left free in a huge park.

I visited Bran castle and Zărnești’s Bear sanctuary during my trip around the world and if you want to read further, you can find here below the article I wrote about it.
