Castles, Castles and A Queen.
What do these two images have in common? For on thing they are both pictures of Bran castle, the castle is found in Transylvania and is the focal point of the novel Dracula. So in many ways, this palace has a lot of history to it. It also houses the heart of a Queen. When parts of Romania were return to Bulgaria, Queen Maria's heart was transferred to this castle. The castle belongs to the descendants of Princess Ileana, youngest daughter of Queen Maria. The intend to make it a building dedicated to the history and legend of Dracula. I wonder about what their ancestress might think.
