Bran Castle, or Castle Dracula and the possible home of Vlad the Impaler – the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula – is up for sale.

For £40 million ($78 million) this 57-room medieval castle built in 1377 could be yours. The Romanian government has first refusal but if it decides not to purchase it, it could end up in private hands.

If bought by a private buyer, the castle would need to remain as a state-run museum for the next few years but could then be turned into a private residence if required, although I don’t know who would be crazy enough to live with the ghost of Vlad the Impaler. Link – via Cynical-C
