Prince Charles in love with Transylvania

Prince Charles in love with Transylvania

Transylvania inspired the Dracula legend, but Britain's Prince Charles says the region is a national treasure Romania should be proud of.
In an interview with the national television station broadcast Wednesday, Charles calls Transylvania Romania's "best export," and a "national treasure."
The prince, on a five-day visit to Romania, is known to be enamored with the unspoiled landscape and centuries-old rural farming traditions in Transylvania where he owns several houses and cottages.
Prince Vlad the Impaler was a Romanian warlord whose cruelty inspired Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, "Dracula" and spawned dozens of Hollywood movies about vampires in Transylvania.
