Interesting place. When I think about castes in Romania, I think about Dracula castle, one of the places I wanted to visit. Sure that there is much more as you presented here. Romania and Bulgaria might be my next vacation destinations. So soon, I may be photographing this castle as well. Thank you for sharing.
