Romanian Castles and Fortresses
The rich medieval heritage of the country is best illustrated by Romania's fortresses and castles. While th thcastles built from the 14 to the 18 century are strong and austere, intended mainly for military purposes, those erected in the late 1800's display an imposing and luxurious architecture. The most popular examples are th the 19 century Peles Castle, Royal Family summer residence, with its 160 rooms filled with priceless European th art collections and, of course, Bran Castle, built at the middle of the 13 century and legendary home of Bram
Stoker's Count Dracula. The Black Church, an impressive cathedral of Brasov, a mediaeval city in South-Eastern Transylvania, was built by the German community of the city and stands as the main Gothic style monument in the country, as well as being the largest and one of the most important Lutheran (Evangelical Church of Augustan Confession in Romania) places of worship in the region.
