CANADIANS SPEND NIGHT IN DRACULA’S CASTLE

CANADIANS SPEND NIGHT IN DRACULA’S CASTLE featured image

Last week we told you about a contest involving AirBnB with the payoff spending Halloween night in Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania.

The prize was claimed by a brother and sister from Ottawa who bested 88,000 other people in the contest and spent last night curled up in red velvet-lined coffins. It’s the first time in 70 years anyone has spent an entire night in the Gothic fortress.

Winners, event planner Tami Varma and her brother Robin, a PhD student are the grandchildren of Devendra Varma, a scholar of English Gothic tales and an expert in vampire lore who visited the castle in 1971.

The Canadian arrived at the Castle in a stagecoach drawn by two black horses. They were greeted inside by Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker and guardian of the Dracula legend.

They later dined on chicken paprikash, the meal described in the 1897 horror novel at a candlelit table, laden with Transylvanian smoked cheeses, fruit and bottles of plum and blackcurrant brandy.
