Dracula's Story
Vlad (Dracula) Tepes was born in Sighișoara, Transylvania, in 1431 and his name was a diminutive of his father’s name. His father was Vlad II Dracul, or Vlad the Dragon. Vlad II got the Dragon name because he was knighted into the Royal Order of the Dragon in 1431. 



But where does the name Dracula come from and what does that have to do with the vampires?



The first person to call Dracula a vampire was Bram Stoker, who wrote the script „Dracula” mostly in the 1890s and it was inspired extensively by Transylvanian folklore and history. 


Dracula is less known as Vlad Tepes. Why „Tepes”? Romanian word țepes means impaler.


Because he used to line the road to his castle with the impaled bodies of his conquered foes. This is the historical truth.


On the other hand, Dracula is known from Bram Stoker's story, as the guy who supposedly dunked bread in the blood of fallen soldiers and who nailed hats on traveling priests when they didn’t tip theirs. Fun at parties, beloved by common people at the time, he makes Luca Brasi in The Godfather look like a saint. 😂
It’s been more than 500 years since Dracula lost his head and he’s still making headlines and box office. Through this beautiful project, Creepto Dracula, we will give a funny face to this devil in a story with a lot of humor and sensitivity.


Was Vlad Dracula a Vampire or not?

A truth that will always be shrouded in a mystery that can be understood by visiting Bran Castle, the Castle where Dracula lived, a place where stories of vampires and spirits are still whispered in the light of the fire.
