Dracula, one of the most famous characters in the world, was always linked to Transilvania province of Romania, which is believed to be a foggy mysterious land, with lots of vampires and castles. The legend tells that the famous Count played a very important role in the 15th century in this part of the world, as the ruler of the Romanian province Wallachia and he was a bloody vampire. The real history tells us that Vlad the Impaler (in Romanian: Vlad Tepes) ruled in Wallachia (Tara Romaneasca at the border with Transilvania) for about 8 years. The name of the already well-known Dracula count became even more famous after Bram Stoker from Dublin has published his novel "Dracula" in 1897. This negative story is an example of non-authentic inspired novels as Bram Stoker had never travelled to Romania. His information came from the London libraries, as Jonathan Harker himself, one of the main characters of the novel, stated. Nevertheless this story made fortunes for movie makers….and that was the inspiration of my painting too.
