About Dracula's Citadel

The citadel is located on a cliff, on the West side of the Transfagarasan road in Arges district, in to the Fagaras Mountains. It was built around the beginning of the 13th century by the rulers of Wallachia.

In the 15th century, realizing the potential for a castle perched high on a steep precipice of rock, Vlad Tepes (Dracula) repaired and consolidated the structure, making it one of his main fortresses.
