Poenari Castle

Poenari Castle Photo, Bucharest, Romania

Poienari Castle was really Dracula's castle. The Turks built the defensive fortress. The castle strategically guards the entrance to Transylvania into the Arges Valley. This is not for those who are not up to active pursuits, as there are 1,500 steps up to the ruins. We took our pictures and looked around, but didn't stay long--we didn't want to be up there when it got dark!
