Peles Castle was built between 1873 and 1883. This Neo-Renaissance castle placed in an idyllic setting in the Carpathian Mountains, on an existing medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia and was the world's first castle fully operated by electric power. The castle has rooms with dedicated themes from world cultures, themes that can vary by function (offices, libraries, armories, art galleries) or by style (Florentine, Turkish, Moorish, French). Bran Castle, the fortress commonly known as "Dracula's Castle, is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia. This Castle is one among several locations linked to Dracula's Legend and it is marketed as the home of the titular character in Bram Stoker's Dracula. The castle was first used in 1378 in defense against the Ottoman Empire, and later became a customs post on the mountain pass between Transylvania and Wallachia. Brasov city, Kronstadt, is the capital of Brasov County and the 8th largest Romanian city. It is surrounded by the Southern Carpathians, and is part of the Transylvania region. The city is notable for hosting the Golden Stag (Cerbul de Aur) international music festival and its famous Black Church.
